If You Want an Up-Close Look at What's Supposed to Run Along the Trinity One Day

thetrinityproject_planrendering110421.jpg
If you're headed down to Earth Day Dallas, which begins right about now in downtown and runs through tomorrow, you're invited to check out the mammoth map of the Trinity River Corridor Project that'll be on display between Booker T. and the AT&T Performing Arts Center. (Above, that's just a piece of a piece of a piece of the 20-foot-by-7-foot Torah scroll.) It's a Trinity Trust project that was prepped after event organizer Trammell S. Crow decided to bus to the event thousands of Dallas ISD kiddos who might otherwise never have heard of the Trinity River Corridor Project ... or the Trinity Parkway, which I see is still planted on the map.

The map, a copy of which will sooner than later wallpaper Schutze's office, is but one of dozens of to-dos available during the fest, where the sked's full of concerts, movie screenings, reading, speeches and other activities, some featuring Larry Hagman. Taking the boy tomorrow, matter of fact, so see you there. Patrick Michels should be down there now -- that, right there, is a good Friday. His report shortly.

Where is the water taxi stand? And where is the community dead body dumping site? I don't see that marked either.

and water that wasn't 90% upstream treated effluent during most of the year.

I lovingly call the stringy things "The Bridge on the River Krap"

Several cities have parks in flood plains..Houston, Memphis, New Orleans and ect. ..why is putting a park in a flood zone a good idea #1 the land is not zoneable and #2 Park goers dont go out when it's raining/storming. I would also like to point out that the last time the Trinity overflowed it's banks was LAST YEAR SEPTEMBER 8 2010!!!!!!!....how long did the plain stay flooded.....3days.....even if it floods tomorrow that would still be a ratio of flooding EVERY 6 MONTHS.....that would be 6 days outta the yr the park is flooded.....u act like it floods every month....come on.......

I know! It's such a visionary and outside the box idea! What could possibly go wrong?

No, just Baby Moses in a basket. But do not tell Richie.

It's not the flood water so much as: who will pay to shovel out the toxic muck after every flood? and how nice will those Plazas, Amphitheatres, water features and whatnot look after they've been buried more than a few times?
