Return to Lick Creek

Thanks to the efforts of Councilman Jim Strickland, the City of Memphis has hired an independent consultant, TetraTech, to study flooding and its solutions in the Lick Creek Basin. TetraTech, Mayor Wharton and Councilman Strickland kicked off the study with a public meeting at Snowden Elementary this past Monday to begin gathering public input.

CPOP sent the letter below as our official comment.
We ask that Forest and Park supporters also weigh in and email the Mayor, Councilman Strickland and TetraTech, asking them to follow the vote of the Lick Creek Coalition and recommendation of the Ellers 2007 engineering report: keep detention out of the Greensward and Overton Park.
