Drainage versus development: New Albany weighing selling site that’s currently a detention basin

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

City officials questioned whether the existing basin is enough to handle the needs of the area, and Brinkworth said there’s some drainage concerns there.

Duggins said the city will have to weigh the benefits of adding property and a business to the tax roll versus leaving the land as a detention basin. 

“There’s a lot of income possibilities there for the city,” Brinkworth said. 

The commission didn’t have a quorum Tuesday so it couldn’t vote on official business. The body will likely hold a meeting on Monday now to vote on a community development block grant plan.
