Laura's concerns: a crying shame

Dear Brian,


Thank you for providing this information, but aside from superficially addressing the storm water issues (there is a storm sewer currently located on the site--where does it tie-in?), there is the considerable problem of antiquated sanitary sewer lines, which tie into a combined sewer system.


The City of Cleveland is obviously rushing this through to avoid the impending EPA compliance on phasing out combined sanitary sewers.  This is disturbing.  As much as you want to dress up this project and call it "GREEN," it will leave the neighborhood with the same problems you have encountered with the Spring Rd. interceptor.  Also, the apparent use of federal funds to demolish 2000 Denison (and the additional properties?) especially disturbs me. 


You and/or Joe Cimperman, or whoever becomes the incoming council person will inherit a mess.  I am sorry that residents of this neighborhood have had to spend time on this project that solely benefits NRP and no one else.  It's a crying shame.
