Bens Branch Approved Easement Agreement

Houston, TX - Council Member
Dave Martin would like to make District E residents aware that Harris County
Flood Control District (HCFCD) has officially obtained a signed easement
agreement with Bear Branch Trails Association and Friendswood Development
Company to conduct much needed maintenance between Northpark Drive and Kingwood
Drive.


Council Member Martin, HCFCD,
Kingwood Service Association and Bear Branch Trails Association have worked
hard over the last eighteen months to finalize this easement agreement. Bear Branch Trails Association and HCFCD had to
request a transfer of ownership before they could begin maintenance.
Friendswood
Development Company had to sign off on the agreement because after annexation
in 1996, the drainage easement returned to their possession. The updated HCFCD
easement agreement was signed by Bear Branch Trails Association earlier this
year, but was pending changes from the Friendswood Development Company.


This week, HCFCD received notice
from the Friendswood Development Company that all proposed changes to the
agreement were accepted, including widening the channel from 70 feet to 100
feet. HCFCD crews will mobilize in the area in the next week to remove silt and
trees from the choke points as a first step.


Thank you to Friendswood
Development Company, Bear Branch Trail Association, HCFCD and all community
leaders who helped move this process along. This is a huge accomplishment
for the Kingwood area. The District E Office will continue working with
HCFCD to address the major and minor areas of concern, providing updates
to the community as they become available.


Please contact the District EOffice with any questions by emailing [email protected].
