Statement on the Indianapolis North Flood Reduction Project

September 3, 2012

On August 23, 2012, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) hosted a public hearing for people to comment on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement (DSEIS) for the Phase 3B of the White River, Indianapolis North Flood Reduction Project. I oppose any plan that crosses the Canal and does not provide flood protection to the community of Rocky Ripple. It is my belief that the USACE and the city should listen to the neighborhoods instead of forcing a non-responsive, improperly designed project on the community. There is time to work with neighborhoods to find a solution that works for all of the mid north region of the city. Read the full statement here: USACE Proposed Floodwall
