Morningside Flood Infrastructure Project

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Morningside neighborhood has several low or landlocked areas that are prone to flooding.

The City Council recently adopted a Flood Risk Reduction Strategy identifying four areas of work:

  • Infrastructure
  • Regulation
  • Outreach and Engagement
  • Emergency Services

Anticipated roadway reconstruction in the Morningside neighborhood in 2022 and 2023 presents an opportunity to explore infrastructure-based solutions to managing flood risk. This is the first project to engage a neighborhood and plan flood infrastructure under the new strategy. The result of this work will be a recommendation to the City Council on infrastructure options to address some of the flooding issues in the Morningside neighborhood in conjunction with the future roadway reconstruction projects.

We want to hear from residents about their experiences, their concerns and what they think about proposed solutions. The latest data, concepts, and opportunities for residents to provide input as this process continues can be found on this page.

For more in depth information about the development of the Flood Risk Reduction Strategy and resident Task Force work, visit the Water Resources Library.
