TAYLOR, TEXAS – The City of Taylor is seeking public input on a Drainage Master Plan that will identify projects to more effectively address drainage improvements. All residents are invited to provide feedback by participating in a virtual forum located on the City’s website at http://bit.ly/TaylorDrainageMP. The forum will be available until 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 23.
The virtual forum will give residents a broad understanding of the Drainage Master Plan project and an opportunity to provide input that will be used to identify concentrated areas of flooding concerns. Residents will be able to click on a map and provide comments as well as upload photos. Participants will be required to sign in upon “entering” the forum.
Taylor City Council approved an agreement with Halff Associates in December 2019 to begin developing a Drainage Master Plan and a kick-off meeting was held in February 2020. The plan will help to more effectively address drainage improvements, identify city-wide flood prone areas, and develop drainage Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects. In addition, the plan will be used to score and rank drainage CIP projects to assist with planning and also conduct a Drainage Utility Fee rate study to fund the identified projects. Funds were budgeted in the FY2020 and FY2021 budget to finance the project.
