The City already announced plans and the work started, but to have an idea of what the result will be, take some time to visit Willow Waterhole in Westbury to see a great example of this sort of smart measure for flood resilience that boosts quality of life for residents nearby My listing at 7322 Tall Pines Dr. where With the addition of recreational amenities, capacity within the basins to hold stormwater typically decreases.
Tree Preservation In early 2017, a tree inventory was conducted on the Inwood Forest Golf Course property. Trees greater than four inches in diameter were tagged and documented according to size, species and general health. Suggestions for possible tree preservation zones were indicated as part of the inventory.
Residents may notice tags on trees. These tags indicate that the tree has been inventoried for planning purposes. Following Hurricane Harvey in summer 2017, the project focus shifted to increasing stormwater detention volume to offset street flooding.
To allow for maximum basin volume, many of the trees in Phase One will be removed. Where possible, a bank or banks of trees will remain. Upon completion of Phase One, new trees will be planted.
Isn’t this amazing?.
