Harris County Officials Host Buyout Tour for George P. Bush, General Land Office Commissioner

2

An important part of Harvey Recovery involves reducing the chances of future flooding.  A 160-acre site near Greens Road and I-45 in North Houston was visited by state and county officials as an example of how Buyout Programs can result in the creation of detention basins.  Approximately 115 homes were bought out and removed from the flood plain as a result of Tropical Storm Allison and Hurricane Ike.  Harris County is currently seeking homeowners who take buyouts for some 3,300 flood prone properties deep in the flood plain.
