Demolition Scheduled at Former Raveneaux Country Club

On or about May 9, 2022, demolition will begin to remove all remaining structures on the former Raveneaux Country Club property now owned by the Harris County Flood Control District, including parking lots, tennis courts and swimming pool. The demolition will be completed using standard construction equipment, including excavators, skid steers, and tractor trailers. The demolition and removal of material will take the contractor approximately 35 to 40 days, weather permitting. For safety reasons, the Flood Control District asks that the public stay away from the demolition site.

In March 2022, teams from the Flood Control District also planted a tree and shrub buffer along Cypresswood Drive. Plantings included approximately 75 native pine, oak and other trees and more than 200 native evergreen shrubs, such as yaupon, wax myrtle and cherry laurel. The plantings will be maintained by the Flood Control District for the next two years.

Negotiations with Cypress Forest Public Utility District continue as to future plans for this property.
