These detention basins are a blighted silt hole for the entire year. In winter the silt and waterRead Moredr owns all life and in summer nothing grows because no seed except seasonal weeds can survive. The maintenance is year round, mosquitos from late draining standing water in ponding areas, removal of seasonal weeds by poison or mow, scrape out infill from standing water, retrace yearly flow exits. This is California, there are highs and lows, if you buy in a low it is not the town, city or county that is responsible for NATURAL DISASTERS! Each home owner is responsible if they live in the flood zone. I've lived here in the middle of the flood zone for 60 years, seen many floods, rule is be aware of the weather, park the car on higher ground, be ready to put furniture and rugs up. If there is a culpable entity it is the planning dept. they should not OK any building or re-building of homes or businesses that are not raised off the ground by less that 4 ft. I watched with amazement as the San Anselmo Fire Dept. built that beautiful new building right on the ground so it can be flooded again. If you want to slow the runoff, the town, city, county should invest in creating a deeper vegetative berm system that will naturally guide water into it's channel, keep it there and filter the debris that causes the most blockage. You can't fight hydraulics but you can direct it.

the one athletic field that probably no one would mind being a detention basin is not even on theRead Moreli st, The artificial turf behind the red hill center in front of sunnyhills. Obviously the dog park users would object.... but reality is that the town doesn't flood because of the runoff from Sorich, (which would pertain to the memorial park DB) but mainly from the san anselmo creek flowing in from Fairfax. and if one really looks at the flood from 2005, fairfax flooded because of clogged culverts, and then there was an area of san anselmo that did not flood, but then another clogged culvert at Nokomis created the flood in town. It should be agreed that all houses in the flood plain are raised. oddly many older buildings in the area have been raised or perhaps originally designed that way, because flooding has been a way of life in the ross valley for 100 years.... but now most have apartment units in the lower areas!! I guess it doesn't flood enough for the property owner to be concerned about their ground floor tenants. so why should the town take on a repugnant use of open space like a detention basin. - something people should also look at is the recent fill in of the natural wetland/detention area BEHIND the Whitehill school before they make the fields after Whitehill school a DB.

Yes, this is a very important issue to the people of San Anselmo. A small number of homes andRead Morestore s are affected by the flooding while hundreds use Memorial Park on a regular basis. Also, the ugly basin will not eliminate the flooding--only reduce it slightly. Lastly, notice the Town Council member(s) who have a conflict with voting on this issue.
