Let's learn a lesson from Houston

Posted By on Tue, Sep 5, 2017 at 9:00 AM

I read an eye-opening news article that stated the major reason Houston drowned in that storm is that developers there are completely unregulated, and can build anything they like anywhere they want, swathing Houston in square miles of water—impervious concrete and zero green space to soak up water.  We in HRM are heading down the same backward-looking path IMO.  I'm sick of this city being a cyclone-street-corner, glass-tower construction zone—it’s time to push back against aggressive, short-sighted developers bullying our City Council to throw the rules out the window. —Semi-off-grid city dweller
