Does anyone know what they are doing at the park now? I know they put in the sprinklers but what is up with the digging and dump trucks?

No, you idiot.

They are building a retention pond to alleviate flooding in the area. It is the same design that is in place at the Glen Meadows Park. When the banks of Willow Springs Bayou(Brookglen) overflow the water will flow into the retention pond and when the banks recede then the water will flow back out.

Heavy, which ones were elderly? Were they paid for their houses?

Again with the misinformation.

No one has forced anyone to move out of their homes. Not even the elderly. So far it has all been voluntary. The only down side of staying in your home would be that your flood insurance rate will skyrocket or you may not be covered at all in the event that your house floods again.

The Harris County Flood Control District offers full appraised price for the home and even covers moving expenses. I know this because I live in Brookglen and have already talked with the HCFCD about the buyout program. Eight houses have already been demolished on my street including both of my next door neighbors. My house is eligible for the buyout in about a year and a half. The houses with the most flood insurance claims were the ones that were demolished first.

Wouldn't the retention areas that are being put in cause these homes to be ineligible for the buy out since there is less of a chance of them flooding in the future?

I, myself, would take the money and run! I don't think those retention ponds are going to make that big of a difference. We heard that story when Spencer Hwy. was redone and when they built that huge retention pond on East. These houses were built near a waterway and the flooding will never be completely stopped. They should never have been built...

Your reasonable and informed response is not welcomed here. You should only post complaints and alarmist false information. In addition, you are not posting enough profanity. Get with the program.

I am not Heavy, I don't think he lives in our subdivsion. I don't know how many were elderly. I just know of a little old lady I ran into in the doctors office and her sad story of having to move after all these years. I do live in Brookglen and have had my house flooded before. I guess we will just have to wait and see how the retention pond works. I hope it is a positive thing for our subdivision.
