Turning Stormwater into Neighborhood Parks

  1. 1. Converting Localized Stormwater Management Needs into Neighborhood Park Opportunities
  2. 2. Some national examples with a focus on the evolving Cleveland experience The Program: John Horwich - The stormwater/parks context Nette Compton - The role and potential of parks Kellie Rotunno – The evolving Cleveland experience John – Making GSI parks happen Q & A
  3. 3. Cities need to spend $100 billion+ to address stormwater over next two decades + Existing parkland makes up 9% of urban land area + Cities are struggling to fund existing and develop new parks + Acres of abandoned homes, industrial & commercial properties = An opportunity The Stormwater/Parks Context
  4. 4. Resiliency Economic Benefits Community Connections Beyond Stormwater Management: The Additional Value of Green Infrastructure  Buffer coastlines  Manage stormwater  Increase urban vegetation and tree cover  Less money and energy to operate  Create jobs  Increase property values  Creative play spaces  Neighborhood gathering spots  Repurposed vacant properties  Regional connections
