Dear Mr. Rockwell,

Thank you for your email.
I agree wholeheartedly with you.

Ms. Richardson, please have the SCVWD present alternatives, such as diversion and culverts. We look forward to this information.

We must preserve this beautiful creek, while providing flood protection.

Hello -

This email is directed specifically to Kirsten Keith, who, I understand, is a member of the JPA, studying potential modifications to the Chaucer St Bridge and environs.

I plan to attend this Wednesday's meeting, but wanted to go on record now as being absolutely OPPOSED to either of the 2 options being proposed by the JPA and the SCVWD.

I have lived on the Creek for over 30 years. I value the trees, the natural habitat, and the unique environment of which the Creek is the heart. Both of these proposals would not only undermine all of those, they would seriously and negatively affect my quality of life and my property value. And by the way, my property extends to the middle of the channel. Anything that is planned that would alter the creek bed, or the water running through it, directly affects my property.

I strongly encourage the members of the JPA to consider other alternatives, namely diversion of flood waters into upstream culverts or upstream holding ponds.

Again, NEITHER of the proposed plans is acceptable. I look forward to discussing this issue on Wednesday and to hearing creative, and less damaging, ideas.
