The $400,000 engineering study ordered up by Santa Rosa County commissioners at the urging of then county commissioner Jim Melvin, suggests more than $80 million in possible flood control measures for Holley by the Sea.
The Holley by the Sea Drainage Improvements Project report (storm water study) is complete. It can be read at:
There is also a hard copy at the HBTS recreation center that can be reviewed on site.
On February 27, Saturday, from 9a.m.-11a.m. there will be a town hall meeting at the recreation center for HBTS residents to discuss this study. Commissioner Rob Williamson, County Administrator Tony Gomillion, Assistant County Engineer Michael Schmidt and a representative from Baskerville-Donovan (engineering firm that completed study) will be in attendance.
Baskerville-Donovan will review the study with the members with a Q&A session after the study is presented.
I encourage all to attend. Please read the study and if there are any questions, please email the question(s) to [email protected]. I will compile the questions and send them to county staff prior to the meeting. This will allow for a more streamlined Q&A session. However, questions may be asked that day that are not sent prior to the meeting.
Please email me or [email protected] for more information or for any questions regarding the town hall meeting.
Again, the meeting will be held from 9a.m.-11a.m. on February 27. Please take time to attend.
