  • The thing about the plan for the detention ponds is that there are viable open greenspace elsewhere that would hold larger amounts of water without destroying the forests along the bayou and are currently not being used for anything else. The problem is that the city doesn’t currently own these tracts of abandoned land whereas they already have right of way along the bayou. I think this should be decided by the people that live there though, because they are the ones at risk of being flooded, yet they moved there because of the forests. Is changing a 1% chance of flooding into a .1% worth losing the greenery that attracted people to the area? I think not.
