The City of Meadows Place is engaged in hazard mitigation planning with Fort Bend County to identify risks and vulnerabilities associated with natural disasters, develop long-term strategies for protecting people and property from future hazard events and lessen risks to community assets. The current plan expires Oct. 11 2017, but city leaders are already working on a new plan. “This is a very important step in making sure Meadows Place is as prepared as it can be” said Mayor Charles Jessup about the initial meeting with State and County official as well as representatives of other Fort Bend County cities, towns and villages.
Participating from Meadows Place were Mayor Jessup, Police Chief Gary Stewart, Public Works Director Danny Segundo, Finance Director Anna-Maria Weston, Parks Director Colene Cabezas and City Secretary Courtney Rutherford. There will be a series of meetings, evaluations, public outreach and significant data gathering to bring the mitigation plan to life. Estimated completion date for the preliminary draft is June, 2017.
