As you know flooding and drainage in our area needs improvement. The Stormwater Master Plan* (SMP) project team has collected the data and is creating models to help illustrate drainage in our area. The next step is input from the community. Our feedback will help the City and Stormwater Master Plan project team better recommend projects and revisions to codes & ordinances.
The Garden District is located within the Ward Creek watershed, and our public meeting is Thursday, October 21st, from 6:00 – 7:00 PM! The virtual meeting will stream live to the SMP website at stormwater.brla.gov. During this meeting, the project team will share what they’ve learned from data collection and modeling in our watershed and address any questions we may have about the Stormwater Master Plan and how it affects the folks in our area.
