Howard County’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will hold a public meeting on Wednesday, February 21, to discuss the results of an Ellicott City building floodproofing study.
The meeting will take place in the George Howard Building’s Columbia/Ellicott City Room at 3430 Court House Drive in Ellicott City, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.
The study, which evaluated building types and floodproofing options, was conducted by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE).
While the study’s target area consisted of Historic Ellicott City, primarily Main Street from US 29 to the Patapsco River, its results and recommendations can be applied countywide.
Possible options for property owners to pursue will be shared at the meeting, the county said in its announcement.
