Lick Creek Flood Control Meeting
There will be a planning meeting with city officials to consider options for flood control of Lick Creek in and around Overton Park. The engineers had previously announced a plan that would dig out the Greensward to a depth of 18 feet and route storm water into the detention basin, but they have been exploring other options and will present these options June 4th. Martha Kelly will represent Park Friends at the meeting,Cindy Buchanan will be there for Park Services, Naomi Van Tol will represent CPOP, and other affected neighborhoods and organizations will also be represented. Park Friends is looking forward to working with the the engineering and public works departments to find a resolution to the Midtown flooding problems that does not harm the integrity of Overton Park.
