Open House Set on Storm Drain Project

September 25, 2007

The public is invited to an open house Tuesday, October 2, 2007 on a stormwater improvement project in the area of 51st and Hillside streets. The meeting is from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Helen Hyatt Elementary School, 5140 Calvert Street.

The proposed improvements would increase the capacity of the existing stormwater drain pipes to protect properties in the neighborhood from flooding. The project is to be funded from the 2007 stormwater bond issue passed in May. Work is scheduled to begin next spring.

Staff from the City Public Works and Utilities Department and from the consulting engineers will be available during the open house to take comments and answer questions.

For more information on the project, see the City Web site, lincoln.ne.gov or contact: Jennifer Thompson, City Public Works and Utilities Department, 441-5671 Tim Carlson, E&A Consulting Group, 420-7217.
