Summit 8.0 MG Ground Storage Tank Improvements

Identified as a maintenance concern in 2014 by TCEQ during their annual tank inspection, Summit Tank was scheduled for renovation to repair, clean deposits, and repaint the interior and exterior of the tank to minimize future maintenance and improve the quality of water within the water distribution system.  The Summit Tank is co-owned by the cities of Duncanville (5/8ths) and Cedar Hill (3/8ths).

This project was completed in 2017 by A&M Construction and Utilities, Inc., at a total cost of $989,425.00.  The City of Duncanville’s share of this cost was $618,390.62.

Citizen Input Needed for City’s Comprehensive Plan

The City of Duncanville is hosting a community meeting seeking citizen input about Destination Duncanville, the Comprehensive Plan, on Wednesday, June 21.

Destination Duncanville is the long-term vision for the City targeting growth areas and specific locations for revitalization-focused efforts. Development of this plan is nearing completion and has been underway since August 2016 with a series of Steering Committee meetings, community and stakeholder meetings, an online survey, and Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council workshops. Public input has generated the basis of the plan.

A summary of input received, elements of the draft plan and proposed recommendations and strategies to implement the public’s vision will be reviewed during the community meeting. Citizens will have an opportunity to participate in interactive exercises and discussion facilitated by the consultant, Freese and Nichols, Inc.

Check-in for the meeting begins at 6:30 pm with the meeting starting at 7 pm and will be at the D.L. Hopkins, Jr. Senior Center (206 James Collins Boulevard, Duncanville).

City Launches Interactive Maps

The City of Duncanville Public Works Department has developed an Interactive Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Map Portal which is available to the public through the city’s website.

The maps will allow access to information to improve transparency of data and communicate information that is frequently requested by the public including citizens and development professionals.

The maps currently available on the portal include Council districts, zoning, storm water and floodplain, TIF District, and utilities. The maps are searchable by address or intersection, and there is a tutorial video and PDF handout available on the website to assist users in navigating the maps.

MOSQUITO SEASON IS HERE

The City of Duncanville is divided into five zones with a fixed mosquito trap in each zone. Each zone is monitored and tested weekly for the presence of the West Nile virus. A positive trap will result in mosquito ground spraying in the zone that is positive. A 24 hour notice of spraying will be posted on the City website with a shaded map, and a notification will be sent out on our Everbridge emergency notification system. If you would like to sign up for Everbridge, please click on the link to sign up for Everbridge.

Spraying does not protect you; it only reduces the number of mosquitos in the area. For personal protection from biting mosquitos, use insect repellents with DEET or other EPA approved repellents.

Remember the 4Ds

DEET Whenever you’re outside, use insect repellents with DEET or other EPA approved repellents.
DRESS Wear long, loose, and light-colored clothing outside.
DRAIN Drain or treat all standing water in and around your home or workplace. (Keep pools and spas drained or clean and clear with bottom of pool clearly visible with chlorine at least 1 ppm and the pump running at least 8 hrs. per day).
DUSK & DAWN Limit outdoor activities during dusk and dawn.
