The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in cooperation with the city of Greeley, will hold a public meeting on Monday, Apr. 21 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the Rodarte Center, 920 A Street in Greeley, Colorado.
At this meeting, they will solicit comments on a draft feasibility study report and environmental assessment that identifies alternatives for flood risk management and ecosystem restoration within a 17-mile reach of the Cache la Poudre River, near Greeley.
There will be a formal presentation at 6:30 p.m. followed by a question and answer session.
“Several nonstructural measures to address flood risk management appear to be feasible, including elevating houses, wet and dry flood proofing commercial structures, and constructing a floodwall around three Weld County buildings in Greeley,” said Steve Rothe, project manager. “Opportunities to increase critical habitat for migratory birds and other native species along eight miles of the study area are also discussed in the draft report,” according to Rothe.
