Flood Control Focus of Meeting Wednesday

Flooding last September caused millions of dollars in damage to neighborhoods along the Las Vegas Wash, Flamingo Wash and Desert Rose Golf Course.

Clark County, the City of Las Vegas and the Regional Flood Control District are working on the design phase of a plan to keep the same type of disaster from happening again.

County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani will host a public meeting from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the cafeteria at Las Vegas High School to discuss the proposed flood control plan.

"At our last public meeting in January many residents asked that the Flamingo Wash also be part of this project, and we were able to provide $16 million in extra funding to include a portion of the Flamingo Wash in the work. Citizen input also has been a critical part of the new designs for the golf course," said Commissioner Giunchigliani, whose commission District E includes Desert Rose.

The projects include improvements to the Las Vegas Wash from Sloan Channel to Cedar Avenue, Flamingo Wash from the Las Vegas Wash to Nellis Boulevard, and reconstruction of the Desert Rose Golf Course. The golf course closed earlier this month to accommodate work on the new flood control measures.

Construction is expected to start next spring and take two years to complete.
