Friends of Eeyores:
Your assistance is requested. Please attend if you are able as there have been a lot of crazy things proposed but this one tops the list.
You may have read about Pease Park Conservancy’s plans for the park – we are totally onboard with that project that has been blessed with a generous donor. Eeyores has worked with this group for decades.
What you have not heard about is Watershed Protection holding a public meeting to reveal its proposal for flood control on Shoal Creek on Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
It will be at 505 Barton Springs Road, Room 325.
Watershed Protection is holding a public meeting to reveal its proposal for flood control on Shoal Creek on Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m at 505 Barton Springs Road, Room 325.
Watershed’s proposed solution is a huge underground containment facility at Pease Park, specifically in the east side of the creek at Lamar & MLK. This will destroy the park as we know it and Pease Park Conservancy needs the help of all its Eeyore’s friends to kill this bad idea in its crib.
This multi-million dollar Soviet-style mega-project would render large parts of the park unusable for years during construction. It would only benefit developers who want to build high rises along Lamar in flood prone areas. There are other much less costly and eco-friendly solutions available to address any flooding concerns.
Please come out to this meeting and demonstrate your support for the park and your opposition to any underground storm water detention facility at Pease.
Pease needs its friends at this critical meeting! See you Tuesday evening!
Your efforts are powerful and respected.
A volunteer of Eeyore’s and Pease Park
