|This is the picture of the Trinity the city included in its FEMA floodplain remapping postcard.|
Now, if you done signed up for the city's E-Alert system, or just stalk the city's Facebook page, you know by now that 1500 Marilla just sent word of five meetings scheduled next month to inform folks along the banks of the Mighty Trinity, that, look, you could also be up shit creek.
The City of Dallas is conducting a series of meetings to educate residents and business owners about the remapping of neighborhoods behind the Trinity River levees by FEMA.At present, the meetings, which begin November 3, are for those living on the west side of the Trinity; the east-siders won't get their talking-to till January. You should go, if only to say hi to Schutze.
The levees have protected the City for decades. But due to new, more stringent guidelines the levees have been decertified. The remapping may affect your property. Please attend one of the meetings to learn and ask questions.
