The public is invited to hear a presentation Tuesday night by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on the Willis Creek Channelization Study.
    The presentation begins at 6 p.m. at the Depot Civic and Cultural Center in Brownwood.
    The presentation will consist of an update on the Corps of Engineers study, which isn’t scheduled for completion until August 2017, City of Brownwood Engineer Project Coordinator Jodie Kelly said.
    The corps will let the public know Tuesday night what direction it is headed with the study and what scenarios have been looked at, Kelly said.
    Representatives of the Speak for the Creek group are also expected to attend.
    Brownwood City Council members approved spending $200,000 in November 2014 to pay the city’s share of the Corps of Engineers study. City officials have said a channelization project would deepen Willis Creek and remove about 400 structure’s from FEMA’s revision of its floodplain maps.
    Opponents to the channelization have said the project would adversely affect the creek’s beauty, its habitat and its ecosystem.
