TOWN OF HARMONY
NOTICE OF SPECIAL MEETING
CONCERNING RECURRING FLOODING
IN STARVIEW HEIGHTS SUBDIVISION
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29, 2012, 7:00 P.M.
HARMONY ELEMENTARY GYM
The Starview Heights neighborhood has periodically experienced serious flooding, especially along Galaxy Drive from north of Saturn Drive to Rotamer Road. Driveway culverts and ditches are collapsed (mainly along the west side of the road) and/or are filled with heavy sediment and in need of repair.
There are funds available through a Community Development Block Grant that can be used for post flood projects. To qualify for this grant the town would need to make a case for our need with evidence of the past flooding such as testimonials, pictures, insurance claims, etc. If you want these repairs, we will need your help and support.
At the meeting on August 29th a Rock County engineer will provide a review of the possible options. In addition to ditching, culvert replacement, and drains, these options could include new detention and/or retention ponds. The project may also involve negotiations with the City of Janesville to accommodate the discharge water. This meeting is a chance for all residents to learn about the advantages - and the possible consequences - of these repairs. Note that changes made by this project could affect the entire neighborhood, not just Galaxy Drive.
We need your input now to help us decide whether to pursue this grant money! The window of opportunity for the grant is short!
We will also need whatever documentation, pictures of flood damage, or testimonials you can provide. Please bring along copies of any evidence you may have to help make our case for the grant funds. Documentation can also be emailed to the town clerk at [email protected] or mailed to Town of Harmony Clerk’s Office, 5818 N Kennedy Rd, Milton, WI 53563.
