This neighborhood, built and rebuilt throughout the 1900s, has several spots where rainfall collects because of inadequate and poorly-designated drainage. During August 2014, several heavy downpours flooded streets and homes. Our short-term fix was to hire outside contractors to pump out the drainage system and to help us clear the drains of debris such as:

  • Litter
  • Pine needles
  • Sticks
  • Spanish moss

We ask for residents’ help -- if you are out walking and notice a drain cover is blocked by debris, either clear it yourself or give us a call and let us know the location.
