In Dallas, the levee collapse at I-35 and Regal Row seems to be causing some concern. The culprit? A water leak in the city utility line.
Two other sections have collapsed in the upper West levees in the past few weeks, but that is blamed on Mother Nature herself.
Over in Fort Worth, money is being given to improve Riverside Park, IF the neighborhood is willing to let it flood. Trinity River Vision wants to excavate the parkland 16 feet lower than it already is.
Neighborhood leaders are concerned about the already limited green space and the contaminants that would be left behind. The city isn't.
The Trinity River Vision Authority and the City of Fort Worth are holding a meeting Tuesday for residents. They say if they really don't want it, they will find other land to use as flood storage.
They said WHAT? Is that part of the Trinity River Master Plan? What other land? How will they obtain other land?
The meeting details are listed below. Lots of meetings tomorrow. Be there! And then share your story with Texas Lone Star!
Share your ideas about a new master plan for Riverside Park, 501 Oakhurst Scenic Drive, at a meeting scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Dec. 1 at Fort Worth Harvest Church, 620 N. Chandler Drive. Residents can discuss and help determine recreational features that would be most desirable to the community. A Spanish interpreter will be available.
