Keep Historic Ellicott City Safer from Flooding and Stop Development of Long Gate Overlook

I do not specialize in the environment or water drainage systems, nor do I pretend to have all of the answers. I just love Ellicott City, as many people do, because this is my home, my work, and because it’s a wonderful place.

I do not believe there is one reason for these severe floods on Main Street within the last 2 years. I have done some reasearch and experts say over-development is part of the problem. As I drive by Long Gate Shopping Center and see signage of a new development going in across the street (Long Gate Overlook), I am thinking, how is it possible to keep building on top of the hill, above our beloved historic district? I realize over-development is not the ONLY problem, but if it’s part of the problem, lets not build across from Long Gate Shopping Center- Long Gate Overlook- or anywhere that could put Main Street at higher risk of devastating floods.
