I want to bring my skill as a Ph.D. geologist to proactively solve the flooding problem.
- New development needs to preserve existing green space and provide surface detention with landscaping. Trees soak up water too. New construction should not cut down mature, healthy trees.
- Drainage projects should be broad in scope and cost effective.
- LiDAR (light detection and ranging technology) shows a dam at the railroad tracks through Southdale that needs to be opened by the railroad or the county.
- Interaction and influence on county projects for Brays Bayou are critical.
Police on the beat and street lights help keep us safe.
- Keep up the good work, Bellaire police! But we still have car burglaries and other crime, especially around the perimeter of Bellaire.
- Street lights help prevent accidents and crime. Where there is a demand from residents, the city should install standard street lights. Expensive decorative lighting is not necessary.
- Nobody is safe if they’re not safe from flooding. As more pavement goes in, including the big 610-I-69 interchange, houses may eventually flood that never flooded before. No more green space when TxDOT gets done.
- No heavy hand of government putting in ‘connectivity’ pathways. Standard sidewalks should go where residents want them, as other street and drainage work progresses.
