This program is tentatively proposed for approximately 330 properties located in the Moorland and Whitewood pumping districts.

Residents at these addresses were sent a letter in the mail on July 26, 2021 containing information about attending or viewing this meeting.

City staff and consultants will provide a detailed overview of the potential program and answer questions regarding implementation, cost, homeowner responsibility, and more. City Council direction will be requested at the conclusion of the discussion.  Attendees are reminded that while the meeting begins at 7 p.m., the FDDP program may not be the first item on the City Council agenda and it is uncertain at exactly what time review of this item will begin.
