The following file is the presentation from the special meeting on September 18th, 2017 at Lawrence E. Elkins High School.
The engineers and operators for the entities in the Steep Bank Creek watershed are carefully working on controlled upstream releases of water today (including areas along the northern segments of University Blvd.). This should not impact streets or homes, but you may notice slight increases in lake levels today and tomorrow.
Again, many thanks to all of the volunteers for their continued help to the community. If possible, please continue to request volunteers to park offsite/carpool to allow residents access to their homes. The HOA has arranged for golf carts to assist people who park offsite this afternoon.
The LIDs are still working to secure a venue for an informational session. We are hopeful that a location, date, and time will be finalized tomorrow.
As previously mentioned, congestion along LJ Parkway and surrounding neighborhoods south of Hagerson Road remains heavy. To better assist residents in those communities, please consider asking your friends, family, and volunteers to park outside of the neighborhood or carpool from areas with better parking.
Also, please take caution in crossing roads. Please cross at intersections, and if an officer is directing traffic, please wait for his signal before proceeding. Please also take care in neighborhood streets, where visibility may be impaired due to the number of cars parked on the streets.
Heavy Congestion South of Hagerson
All neighborhoods south of Hagerson are experiencing heavy road congestion. PLEASE cooperate with local law enforcement officers attempting to coordinate traffic – all streets must be sufficiently clear to accommodate emergency vehicles, so neighborhood entrances may be closed at times. Please park on LJ Parkway, and offices will signal when additional cars may enter.
If you have volunteers coming to assist you, please ask them to park on LJ and walk in – as we are trying to accommodate as many resident vehicles as possible.
Please take care in walking through or making contact with any standing water — wear boots, gloves, and safety masks when possible! All floodwater and standing water can pose various risks, including infectious diseases, chemical hazards and injuries.
Initial spraying commenced this morning. The LIDs will continue efforts.
The HOA is working to find street sweeping crews and equipment.
Reminder – FEMA/Fort Bend County will not pick up debris past the sidewalk. Please do your best to place debris between the curb and the sidewalk.
