Rain barrels available for pick-up: Rain barrels help conserve water resources by harvesting rainwater for use in gardens, lawns and washing cars.  The use of barrels also helps protect the City’s water quality by capturing rainwater from household downspouts and preventing the water from carrying potential contaminants into the City’s storm drains.

The 50-gallon rain barrels were available for purchase through the program’s website.  The ordered rain barrels will be available for pick-up on Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to noon at League City Public Works, 1535 Dickinson Ave., League City, TX. A receipt for proof of purchase will be required.

Parks Public Survey: The City of League City is seeking public input on the Parks and Open Space Master Plan.

League City has seen tremendous growth since the plans were last updated.  The current Parks and Open Space Master Plan was completed in 2005, and the Trails Master Plan in 2010.  Each plan was developed and implemented to reflect the communities' needs, opinions and trends along with the standards for provisions of parks at the time.  City officials plan to update and combine both the Parks and Open Space Master Plan and Trails Master Plan into one.  The plan will then reflect a detailed approach and vision for the City’s parks and trail systems.

Citizens interested in providing input can participate via the public survey at
