  • “A large and attractive retaining wall was recently constructed…”
    (a) It’s definitely large.
    (b) It’s definitely not attractive. I’m the son of a civil engineer so I appreciate good infrastructure when I see it, but there is no beauty there.
    (c) Who cares if it’s attractive because the owner doesn’t have to look at it!
    In cases like this I think about the universality principal: What would the city / area / bayou / neighborhood look like if everyone did this?

  • Are they tearing down the 6400 sq foot structure on the land it because it flooded? Did it flood before or after the wall? Right at a bend in the Bayou, I wouldn’t touch the property with a ten foot pole, much less with $2.6 million hard earned dollars.
