Project Number #10SWIF-111
Est. Project Completion November, 2010
SubGrantee Portage County Board of Commissioners 449 South Meridian St., 7th Floor Ravenna, Ohio 44266
Project Contact: Claudia James, GIS Specialist and Planner Portage County Regional Planning Commission
Amount Awarded: $33,954
Project Title: Portage Co. Regional Planning Parking Lot Bio-Retention Cells
Project Location: City of Ravenna
Watershed: Breakneck Creek—tributary to the Cuyahoga River
Project Summary: $33,954 in Surface Water Improvement Fund (SWIF) grant funding is awarded to the Portage County Commissioners to retrofit an existing urban parking lot within Ravenna’s business district with two 2 bio-retention cells to demonstrate new ways of dealing with storm water run-off in older urban areas. SWIF grant funding will be used to construct the two bio-retention cells between the Portage County Planning Commission parking lots and public parking areas to the north. These cells will intercept and filter surface run-off prior to emptying into a catch basin. The project will be supported by education and outreach activities such as the development and distribution of two fact sheets, a presentation during the Portage Regional Planning Commission’s board meeting, conducting a public meeting on the premises for contractors, businesses, engineers and resident, a project-specific newspaper article in the Ravenna Record Courier and project specific signage.

Project Deliverables: Construction and installation of 615 square feet of bio-retention cells within the city of Ravenna in a parking lot servicing the Portage County Regional Planning Commission. Conduct education and outreach activities including the development and installation of 3 project specific signs, creation and distribution of 2 project specific fact sheets, 3 public meetings, 1 newsletter articles and a newspaper article in the Ravenna Record Courier.

Environmental Results: Successful completion of this project will passively treat stormwater drainage, reduce nonpoint source pollution loadings to the Breakneck Creek and ultimately the Cuyahoga River and demonstrate alternative methods of stormwater management for area developers and local officials.
