Property owners in the project area have been involved in the design process, and will have the opportunity to stay engaged every step of the process.

The public will have an opportunity to provide input at several stages in the design process.

The city and NRD’s project managers are aware of the priorities and sensitivities that property owners have with the project, and will ensure that all issues raised are thoroughly addressed.

 

The public input collected from project area stakeholders and the public will be used by the design team as they design the improvements.

Continued stakeholder engagement and collaboration will ensure that the final design addresses the future needs of project area stakeholders and the community.

Access to properties in the project area during construction will be a key consideration of the construction plan.

 

It is expected the improvements proposed will lower the water surface elevation in the channel approx. two-to-four feet during a heavy rainfall.

The increased capacity of the channel will reduce flood risk and potential property damage in the area.

The drainage channel will also be accessible and safe for the city to maintain.
