Latest Update 

The City has a consultant under contract for the design work associated with the proposed detention basins. Over the past few months, several layout alternatives have been developed for the detention basins and preparations are being made for the permitting process. The next step will be running stormwater modeling software for the alternatives to aid selection of an effective design. Once additional planning and design information becomes available, another Public Information Meeting will be hosted. Please see below for additional information about the public involvement process. Updates will also be shared periodically on this webpage.

Project Overview

The Stormwater Utility is proposing a project to construct a series of regional detention basins north of Mid Town Road, and east of Meadow Road. The purpose of the ponds will be to contain flood water, reducing downstream flooding and minimizing local flood impacts.

As part of the project City Engineering is proposing to extend Feather Edge Road from the existing terminus to Meadow Road. The City Parks Division will also be discussing a future master planning effort for the proposed Hill Creek Park expansion.
