Regarding 2501 Monument Road request by Frog Pond LLC to vacate a dedicated drainage easement located on the property at 2501 Monument Road and in a FEMA regulatory 100 flood year plane, an area that is prone to a regular flash flooding there is no question of if it will flood it is just when it will flood. If you the Planning Commission and City Council approve the 2501 Monument Road vacate, #1, will you require an adequate dollar deposit in the way of a bond or something that works by Frog Pond LLC to reimburse for damage to property and/or physical injury or death two people? #2: Why would any intelligent builder build in a known flood plain? Reference is September 7th 1978 flood that took out two bridges, a gas line, put three to four feet of filth in the log cabin on the 2501 Monument Road home and down the road another one that we helped dig out, plus deposited 3 to 4 feet of filth in our own yard at 2510 South Broadway. Home of Louis and Gilbert McClure. Why would anyone in their right mind approve it?
