We've had many homes flooded in the past three years. Let's put a mitigation plan in place to minimize the number of homes effected by future flood events. Items to be investigated should be things like: Improve drainage. Buyout homes which are more flood prone. Put restrictions on new development, so property is built at a higher elevation. Build another reservoir.
Hope for the best; plan for the worst.
There were a lot of evacuations due to recent flooding. Some residents didn't know they needed to evacuate until there house was taking in water. Others needed to evacuate and had no place to go. Let's make sure people get notified and know what to do and where to go in an emergency.
Combat Climate Change
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
We are experiencing the significant impacts of climate change, which include changing weather patterns, rising sea level, and more extreme weather events.
Promote Business on our Terms
We want to bring business to Fort Bend, but it should be on our terms. Our people should have competitive pay and benefits.
