King County committee to host meeting in Renton next week to discuss flood risks on Cedar River

The members of the King County Flood Control District Executive Committee will host a special meeting in Renton on Wednesday, July 30, to discuss the work being done to enhance flood reduction programs along the Cedar River.

The meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. at Renton City Hall, 1055 S. Grady Way, Room 702.

Committee members will hear a presentation on the Cedar River Corridor plan, the effort to develop a long-range strategy and action plan for flood protection along the 22-mile corridor.

The City of Renton will also brief members on the effort to restore the 100-year conveyance capacity along the lower 1.25 miles of the Cedar River to provide continued flood protection to properties within the floodplain.

These properties include The Boeing Company's 737 assembly plant, PACCAR's Kenworth Truck manufacturing facility, Renton Municipal Airport, residential areas and commercial properties such as The Landing in Renton, which are cornerstones to the economic health of the region.

The project is being funded by the King County Flood Control District with work being done by the City of Renton.
