Someone has spent a LOT of money already on water displacement studies, surveys etc. not to mention the architectural renditions and promotional material. Swamplot is just one website I found covering it, but it's certainly an ironic name for a site covering such a project, given the location LOL.
The Barrington would be completely surrounded by this project. It's massive.
I could see that maybe on Clear Lake where there's an established sailing/boating community, but the San Jac river and Lake Houston are hardly boating meccas. They're even talking about some kind of water treatment (at least in the marina and connecting canal areas) that turns the water blue or green, like the fake lake around the woodlands mall. It's crazy!
Meeting MONDAY, January 14th to learn what we need to do to PROTEST the building of the proposed marina near Barrington subdivision on Woodland Hills Drive- MONDAY, 6-8pm at the Kingwood Community Center, 4102 Rustic Woods Drive. Its the building by HEB and Kingwood Park and Ride.
If this goes through, the poor residents in lovely Barrington, ,a gated community, will be surrounded by high rises on three sides and the noises of water activity on the fourth side. Then if they flood again as the entire neighborhood did during Harvey, the water will be blocked in by the new buildings with no where to go. Comments about this project has been extended to March 1st.
