The Harris County Flood Control District issued a statement Jan. 22 clarifying that the Harris County Commissioners Court does not need to vote on the pending acquisition of Raveneaux Country Club, as previously stated. As such, the item will no longer be on the Jan. 28 meeting agenda, and the deal is expected to close by the end of January.

According to the HCFCD, the action taken by Harris County Commissioners Court earlier this month both authorized and approved the acquisition, meaning the deal is expected to close by Jan. 30 without further action by commissioners.

The HCFCD posted the statement to its Raveneaux Acquisition Information page on its website.

The statement reads:

"On January 7, 2020, Harris County Commissioners Court authorized the Harris County Flood Control District’s negotiation and acquisition of 27.63 acres of Raveneaux Country Club property owned by Kera Development LP and Cypress/Raveneaux LLC. The sale is scheduled to close on or about January 30, 2020. Approval of this pending acquisition does NOT require further Harris County Commissioners Court approval and so will NOT be an agenda at the January 28, 2020 meeting. Residents are always welcome to address Commissioners Court by the appropriate process.


Following the sale closing, the Flood Control District will commence negotiations with Cypress Forest Pubic Utility District to purchase the remaining 206 acres on which the golf course operates.

Recently, the Flood Control District unintentionally misstated the process for the purchase of the Raveneaux Country Club property, and the Flood Control District regrets the error and any confusion this many have caused."

While another vote will no longer take place Jan. 28 as previously stated, residents can submit comments regarding the Raveneaux acquisition online by clicking here and can sign up to speak at the Jan. 28 Commissioners Court meeting by clicking here.
