Drainage Improvements

With over 10,000 households in the City of Cabot, the need for improved drainage in our neighborhoods is important to real estate values. Commercial and retail developments continue to expand, creating new jobs, and opportunities for the City of Cabot. The proposed infrastructure will also be designed to support future development for the community.

The City of Cabot will be working on several drainage projects identified from a drainage study of needed infrastructure improvements. The proposed projects will help to reduce flooding, and will improve effective drainage control systems for the City. The final plans may vary from the following descriptions below.

This will NOT be a new tax. This will be an extension of the current 1% sales and use tax that was originally presented and approved in 2005, and extended in 2013 by voters.
