Raveneaux Demolition Begins September 14th, 2021

The demolition will prevent any additional vandalism and unlawful entry onsite. For safety reasons, the Flood Control District asks that the public stay away from the demolition site. Cherry Construction, a demolition contractor for the Flood Control District, expect to demolish the building in five days and up to three months to haul away and finish the project, which includes removing the parking lot and the pool maintenance building. The Swimming Pool, Tennis Courts and Equipment Barn will remain, and of course, our Water Plant with its access road will remain.

The demolition will be completed using standard construction equipment, including excavators, loaders and bulldozers. There will be noise and dust. All material will be hauled off using the property most western entrance on Cypresswood Drive. The trucks will then head westward toward Cutten Road to avoid most of the subdivision’s homes. The PUD will inform you about work hours when they are made available to us, but it’s possible that Saturdays will be on the schedule.

In January 2020, the Flood Control District purchased 27.6 acres of land, while Cypress Forest PUD retains 258. Negotiations continue to exchange land between us, so we can improve the ambience and the quality of life for our community that you supported when we originally purchased the land in 2011, as well as reduce flooding in the area. Your PUD Board thinks this is the first step of reinvigorating the neighborhood.
