Notice of Public Hearing on Hazard Mitigation Plan Creation

Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 7

The purpose of Fort Bend County Levee Improvement District No. 7 (“LID 7”) is to construct and maintain certain levee and drainage improvements to provide protection to the land and improvements of residential and commercial property owners in New Territory from flooding from the Brazos River. LID 7 is in the process of creating the District’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.

The plan will identify local policies and actions for reducing risk and future losses from natural hazards. To remain eligible for certain federal funding associated with natural hazards, the plan must be created, approved, and updated every five years.

Numerous other local governmental stakeholders are assisting LID 7 in the Hazard Mitigation Plan. However, it is also vital and very helpful that LID 7 have public input regarding the creation of the Hazard Mitigation Plan in all respects, including the identification of natural hazards, mitigation goals, strategies and possible mitigation actions.

A copy of the draft can be found here: Hazard Mitigation Plan Draft

LID 7 is inviting the public to participate and provide input into the creation of the Hazard Mitigation Plan in one or both of the following ways:

  1. By reviewing the Hazard Mitigation Plan Update that can be found on the LID 7 website:

  2. By attending a Public Hearing that is scheduled for Tuesday, May 15, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. at the Sugar Land City Hall, 2700 Town Center Blvd N, Sugar Land, TX 77479. At the Public Hearing there will be an opportunity for any member of the public to review the draft Hazard Mitigation Plan, and to discuss mitigation strategies.

LID 7 appreciates and thanks all persons and other local governmental entities who are assisting and providing input in regard to the creation of the LID’s Hazard Mitigation Plan.
