The City of Panama City proposes to reduce flood risks to properties in the Robinson Bayou watershed by utilizing the Federal Emergency Management Agency Hazard Mitigation Grant Program to fund the construction of a series of drainage improvements. These improvements may include restoring storm-damaged wetlands, modifications to ditches, replacement of pipes, construction of ponds and other enhancements intended to reduce flood risks. The results of these improvements will reduce peak flood stages while providing a balance of floodwater storage, drainage function and enhanced urban wetland habitat.
The City will host an Open House on Tuesday, February 6, 2024 from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to share the results of the engineering and environmental study as well as the current recommended slate of improvements. The open house will be held in Room 010 at City Hall, located at 501 Harrison Avenue.
