Notice to Public
The Region 2 Regional Flood Planning Group is holding a public meeting to present the Draft Regional Flood Plan at its regularly scheduled meeting on September 1, 2022, at 2 pm, and to accept public comments. In 2019, the Texas Legislature created a state and regional flood planning process administered by the Texas Water Development Board. One of 15 regions, the Lower Red-Sulphur-Cypress Regional Flood Planning Group - comprised of volunteers - was tasked with developing a regional flood plan to identify flood-prone areas and assess ways to address flooding. The Draft Regional Flood Plan is a comprehensive document identifying existing and future flood risks as well as recommendations for Flood Management Evaluations (FME), Flood Management Strategies (FMS), and Flood Management Projects (FMP). The plan also estimates funding required to implement the solutions identified in an effort to protect life and property. The draft plan is available at www.texasfloodregion2.org. The public comment period is open from August 1 to October 1, 2022. Comments can be provided in-person at this meeting or via email at [email protected]
A link to the plan can be found below, or hard copies of the Region 2 State Flood Plan are available for review at the Public Libraries located in Sherman, TX, Texarkana, TX and Mount Pleasant, TX.
