Five Communities Selected for 2018 Class of Great American Defense Communities

first_imgADC has named five communities from across the country to the 2018 class of Great American Defense Communities, a recognition of the unique contributions communities that host military installations make to improve quality of life for service members and military families. The 2018 class, along with neighboring installations, includes:Chesapeake Science & Security Corridor, Md. (Aberdeen Proving Ground);Greater Fort Knox region, Ky. (Fort Knox);San Diego region (MCAS Miramar, MCB/MCAS Camp Pendleton, MCRD San Diego, NB Coronado, NB San Diego and NB Point Loma);South Georgia region (Moody AFB); andTampa Bay (MacDill AFB and Avon Park Air Force Range).“The men and women who serve our nation deserve our full support whether they are on a mission abroad or on duty at an installation closer to home,” said ADC President Bill Parry, according to a press release. “Communities have found many ways to show service families that they are welcome on both sides of the installation fence, and the Great American Defense Communities program has quickly become an important way to highlight their successes.”Communities are selected following a competitive nomination process based on community building and integration, support and collaboration, educational and employment opportunities, and family support. The communities selected for the 2018 class will be honored throughout the year, including at the Defense Communities National Summit in June 2018. The initiative, which is in its third year, is sponsored by USAA. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Harris County Begins Work on Flood Control Project Near Addicks and Barker

Crews will be improving creeks that flow into the reservoirs near West Houston neighborhoods that flooded after Hurricane Harvey.Even before the storm, sediment had been piling up in the creeks, slowing down water flows and reducing the amount of water the creeks can hold. Harvey made the problem worse.Now, the Harris County Flood Control District will be removing that buildup from Horsepen Creek to start, and later from other channels. The project also includes repairs to banks that were severely eroded by Harvey and the 2016 Tax Day flood.The district’s Precinct 3 Coordinator Matt Lopez said the project is part of a broader effort to study whether sediment removal actually makes a difference in improving water flows.“Is the benefit overriding the cost? If it’s not cost worthy, and there’s no benefit to drainage, then we’ll have to look at something else,” he explained.Lopez said the creek improvements aren’t guaranteed to better protect nearby homes against another Harvey-sized storm. But, he said, the district hopes the work will help with more localized flooding. Listenlast_img read more
