30th Street Flood Mitigation Program
The purpose of the project is to build a 30th Street Corridor storm water management system that will solve drainage problems which have plagued the corridor for decades.
30th Street Industrial Corridor Flood Mitigation: Possible Solutions
Greenway concept:
Greenway would provide a drainage backbone that would serve as a pathway for stormwater.
Natural green space
Open land for new industrial and commercial buildings and housing
Increase recreational and urban agricultural activities
Improve connectivity within the corridor
Act as a buffer between residential and industrial areas
Crosstown Bike Trail that would link the Lincoln Creek to the Hank Aaron trail to the south.
Well designed and maintained greenspace have proven to improve adjacent property's values and would be a major creator of lots of local jobs.
Vacant Land Financing Plan
A financing plan needs to be developed to assist in the removal of blighted properties
An agreed upon solution is required for re-purposing vacant land
