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 updating the District’s Hazard Mitigation Plan. The updated 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 updated every five years.

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

LID 7 is inviting the public to participate and provide input into the updating 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 16, 2023, at 5:30 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.
