  • Distributing recovery information and supplies.
    • Rec Center will serve as the central coordination center, and we will try to set up information and supply kiosks in areas south of Hagerson Rd. and at the Rec Center
    • Exact hours and locations of satellite kiosks still TBD as water recedes, but we hope to have initial operations underway tomorrow morning.  We may not have all the supplies we need, but we can at least try to provide some preliminary recovery information.
  • Working with Riverstone’s home builders and contractors to provide assistance for our residents.
  • Setting up a community informational meeting.
    • We are still working to finalize date, location, and time. 
  • Sharing informational resources regarding recovery steps for flooded homes.

We will keep you posted as we obtain additional information and resources for recovery.
