I thought that the neighbors really wanted the minipark but the field orientation was obviously more important. Prediction: The water district will give up on Mt. View entirely and 50-year-old McKelvey will stay the way it is. The trees will stay, the fields won't be shrunk, the current parking will stay, and there won't be any playgrounds for another 50 years at least.
I don't know why Jac Siegel says people are not building detention basins anymore or that they are 1960s technology. A simple Google search shows they they are a best practice recommended by FEMA Web Link , the EPA Web Link , and state and local Web Link flood and environmental protection agencies. I've not heard anyone propose any feasible alternative for the 100 yr flood volume that is expected in the Permanente and Hale creeks that would overflow right there at McKelvey park.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
