Please note that we will remember that this was promised:
"Once construction is complete, the corps will put in new landscaping, said spokeswoman Sarah McLaughlin. There likely will be two or three times as many trees planted, with wider, mature trees being replaced inch-for-inch with younger trees, she said."
Can someone please show us the line in the SELA implementation plan and the associated budget so that we will KNOW that this promise (like the one made for Dublin Street) doesn't end up BROKEN?
Also please note that, while the TREES can be replaced, NOTHING has been said or done (or if it has it has not been communicated to the neighborhood organizations that raised the question) regarding the Monticello Canal and the constriction at Airline which will cause all the water that is expected to flow faster down Claiborne from other areas in Uptown to potentially back up into the areas around the Monticello Canal. Taking Water from wealthier areas and funneling it into less wealthy areas.
