Demolition of Home Buyout Properties Scheduled
 
Houston, TX - Houston City Council Member Dave Martin would like to make residents aware that Harris County Flood Control District (HCFCD) will begin the demolition of some home buyout program properties located in Forest Cove next week. 

The demolition will begin with units 803 and 805 Timberline Court as well as 1060 Marina Drive located within the Forest Cove Town Home community. HCFCD plans to submit the demolition request for 1050 Marina Drive shortly. Currently there are several other units that are almost completely under HCFD's ownership and once they are completely owned their demolitions will follow. 

Thank you to City of Houston Department of Neighborhoods Director TaKasha Francis for her assistance with expediting the demolition permit process. These town homes are a constant reminder to the community of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.

HCFCD has done a tremendous job in keeping our office informed on the status of the demolition process for these Hurricane Harvey buyout properties. To stay informed on HCFCD's buyout program process visit their website
