The City of Midland will host a public meeting on Thursday, Feb.19 to discuss recommendations resulting from the study of the Jal and Midland Draws.

The portion of Jal Draw included in the study extends from Highway 349 North to Loop 250 North and the portion of Midland Draw included in the study extends from Highway 349 to the intersection of Mockingbird Lane and A Street.
Maps and drawings describing the study and the recommendations for future channel alignments will be displayed at the meeting.
