Hazard Mitigation Plan 2020 Update

The City of Sugar Land is currently updating the 2020 Hazard Mitigation Plan. The purpose of the Plan is to identify natural and man-made hazards, activities to reduce losses from those hazards, and establish a coordinated process to implement the Plan. The City needs your input to create a safer, more disaster-resilient community. The Survey is comprised of 30 questions and is divided into the following three sections:

This survey consists of three sets of questions:

  1. The first section identifies demographic information used to correlate responses to the questionnaire.
  2. The second section involves potential hazards near you and whether your knowledge of potential hazards influenced your decision to choose where you live.
  3. The last section is about your experience and knowledge of natural and non-natural hazards in general and steps your household has taken to prepare for hazardous events.

Weather Update

The NWS has upgraded the low pressure system off the coast to Tropical Storm Imelda. TS Imelda has made landfall over Brazoria County and is forecast to move northward across the Houston metropolitan region over the course of the next few days and will bring moderate wind and significant rainfall to the area.

Your LID 17 team will continue to monitor the situation and respond as necessary should any issues arise.

For your part, please be mindful of the situation and exercise caution if you encounter heavy rainfall or ponding on the streets. As we observed in the May 7th rainfall event some streets, such as portions of Telfair Avenue, Westcott, Meadowcroft or Chatham Avenue, are more susceptible to ponding. Please avoids those areas to minimize your risks.
