The City of Austin Engineering Department is inviting the public to attend an open house from 5-6:30 p.m. on May 28, to discuss the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s Planning Grant for Stormwater Community Resilience for the downtown area of Austin.

The meeting will be held at the Austin Public Library.

In May of 2023, the City of Austin was awarded the Planning Grant for Stormwater Community Resilience, which provides funding to develop a Downtown Stormwater Resilience Plan identifying locations and causes of localized flooding within the city’s downtown area, assesses damage potential and community vulnerability to localized flooding, and develops potential projects to reduce flooding and mitigate the effects of climate change in the downtown area.
