Because of the relationship to the drainage area under study, information will also be solicited for the areas of Hoopers Bottom and Regency Park (Haynes Drive to Thompson Lane area west of Memorial Boulevard) and Dry Branch (DeJarnette Lane to Compton Road east of Memorial).

Representatives from HSE and city staff will be available to discuss the study area and gather information from the public regarding the study area. Anyone interested can arrive any time between 5 and 7 p.m. to review information and discuss issues with the study team.
