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."
