Could It Be ... Solar-Powered Water Taxis? Nah. Just "Significant News" About Trinity Levees.
City Hall just sent word: Tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. in the Flag Room, Mayor Dwaine Caraway, Trinity River Corridor Project Committee Chairman Dave Neumann and representatives of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Trinity Trust Foundation and Trinity Commons Foundation will hold a press conference to announce "significant news regarding the Dallas Levee System." The release follows City Hall's being told by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers today that its plans to fix the levees is likely to be approved after all, per Kevin Craig of the Corps: "We anticipate the proposal will accurately and sufficiently document the culmination of all of our efforts."
Caraway tells Unfair Park this evening that he doesn't want to discuss the details of the Corps' report to the city; matter of fact, he says, city officials are meeting tonight to review the docs before tomorrow's press conference. But the release from the city says that "exciting improvements and projects are on the horizon," and says the press conference will offer "the latest updates and developments focused on the Dallas Levee System to implement the 100-Year Levee Improvement Project."
If you need Schutze tomorrow, that's where he'll be.
