The one between Henderson and Barton. I walk all the blocks in the rain and our block is the only one with multi-car sized standing puddles. We also have the least permeable space for natural absorption with paved planting strips and high density as allowed by the urban village policy. We would have been a great opportunity to demonstrate the multitude of benefits of such a project. The plan as given to us in November was a significant improvement. I was excited to know that the city actually cared and had a good plan. This is just so disappointing.

This block has always been included in the discussion and planning for the project. A number of us have participated in community meetings and a Walk & Talk to give input to the project plan. There are at least 3 areas of our block that have significant drainage problems resulting in large standing puddles for a prolonged period of time during our wettest months. The puddles are so large and deep that people avoid parking in those spots despite the high density of our block and the limited parking available.
