I’ve noticed that the new developments have large areas devoted to, I guess, water collection or water holes? Example: Queen’s Gate (on Rolater) has two and Tuscany (on Hillcrest) has one.
Is that a city code? Why?

These large areas are detention ponds that retain and then slowly release rain water that is collected within the subdivision. The dentention ponds are a city code requirement and are intended to minimize any potential flooding down stream from the subdivision.
