FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
City Seeks Input for Drainage Master Plan
The City of Bryant seeks residents' input for the initial stages of a Master Drainage (Stormwater) Plan for the city. The plan will provide the structure to create a drainage capital improvement program and assist the city in establishing a solid framework for policy and funding to protect public safety, city infrastructure, and the environment.
“Citizen input is critical at this stage of this project,” Ted Taylor, Bryant City Engineer states. Over the past years, we have identified several problematic stormwater areas and have invested millions of dollars for improvements to correct some of these older, ongoing issues. Citizen input will allow us to gather additional and current data on areas with flooding and erosion problems that will be included in this overall plan update.”
“Stormwater management and planning are necessary to protect public safety and infrastructure while meeting regulatory requirements. This plan will ensure we are meeting all those requirements while at the same time creating a foundation for future partnerships with builders and developers as the city continues to grow. This is a part of the city’s ongoing smart growth plan that has been in place for several years.” added Mayor Allen Scott.
This master plan will include identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing drainage issues within the city and developing a list of projects to address and mitigate drainage issues.
The consulting engineering group Garver was selected to lead this project for the city. To give input or find out more about this project you can go to https://bryantdmp.
