Resident Survey for Citywide Stormwater Master Plan

December 15, 2016 - Stormwater management is a critical initiative for the City and the establishment of a comprehensive plan is the key next step. Christopher B. Burke Engineering Ltd. (CBBEL) has been hired by the City to develop a citywide Stormwater Master Plan.  This plan is likely to include project recommendations with significant long term implications and associated costs.

As part of this project, CBBEL has developed an online survey for residents to take. A link to the survey can be found on the City’s website, or at The survey will include basic flooding questions along with an area for comments and more detailed descriptions. Paper copies of the survey will also be available at City Hall and the Public Works Service Center.  All results will go directly to CBBEL for compilation.

In the future, meetings will be scheduled for additional resident input.

Thank you for your participation.
