Unstable Spanish Fort bluffs home to 12 homes; is time running out?

Twelve homes remain on the unstable bluffs of Patrician Drive, just west of U.S. 90 and north of Interstate 10.

The city has been working since 2003 on a federal grant to repair and stabilize the steep hillside, but now, less than three months before the grant expires and the money disappears, the project seems to be at a standstill.

According to Mayor Joe Bonner, the Federal Emergency Management Agency is waiting for the city to confirm funding and a maintenance agreement before the agency can move forward with the stabilization project.
