Background and Discussion:
Approval of certain projects, decreeing the projects to be a public necessity and convenience, and directing the Harris County Real Property Division to acquire fee simple tracts for the public project known as the Harris County Project Recovery Post Disaster Relocation and Buyout program, for the purpose of preventing future flood damage.
