If you are near Garden of the Gods Park this afternoon, you may see a Chinook Helicopter landing at the detention pond on the north end of the park. FEMA is coming to tour the detention pond and flood mitigation work in the area. These projects are designed to protect Garden of the Gods Park, Rock Ledge Ranch, and downstream neighborhoods from flooding after the Waldo Canyon Fire. A FEMA Hazard Mitigation Grant paid for the majority of the cost of constructing the detention facility project. To learn more about the project visit https://coloradosprings.gov/gogdetention
