Destroy our Buffer
leave us a Flood Risk
LDS Church's neighbors are the ones who will have to endure the consequences permanently
Oak Hill Park was built, like Houston, on land that with extensive portions of swamp; we depend on Carlson Ave. Woods to act as a buffer against flooding. By allowing the replacement of 5.6 acres of natural woods with a Church and its parking lot,
the City fails to protect its residents.
With unpredictable weather patterns, who can guarantee us that we will not have to deal with flood problems over the long-term?
