  • The City of Bellaire evaluates each flooding event. Below are a few of the steps the City has taken in response to previous events:
  • In 2007 the City adopted its Flood Hazard Mitigation Plan.
  • The City is in the process of updating the adopted plan. On August 21, 2017, the City Council authorized the establishment of the City's Flood Hazard Mitigation Task Force. Each meeting of the Task Force is open to the public. Additionally, we will hold a Public Hearing on the recommended changes, and provide notice of that hearing date.
