Has the City considered the impact the urban trail may have on drainage, particularly in areas prone to flooding?

Yes, drainage is a key factor in the development of the urban trail project. We are making sure drainage will remain in the roadway area, away from private property.  Public Works manages drainage by considering volume of a 24 hour, 25 year event.  The amount of sidewalk and blacktop utilized for roadways and pedestrian transportation do not negatively affect the drainage calculations.
