Redesigning after disaster

After facing a devastating flood that uncovered a landfill under portions of Evans's signature park, Evans faced the challenge of creating a safe park space and mitigating future floods. In collaboration with FEMA, the Colorado Department of Health and Environment, and the EPA, the city is planning to not only restore the park, but design it in such a way that it will be less affected in the next flood event. Restoration efforts will begin once the re-design is complete.
