RE: [hreg] ???
- This is probably very good. The John Koros of HCFCD has presented his flood
control plan for Houston at the CEC before. I think the direction is
fantastic. I would be willing to bet that this partnership will come up
with a place that we will all be proud of. They are trying to put
recreational facilities in the flood zones and keep residential & commercial
development out. They want the recreational facilities to be wonderful and
inviting to the public. I think Mercer Arboretum (correct me if I am wrong)
was built in the flood plain in a way it could be easily restored if
flooded, which it was, and it was restored for low cost.
