Project description and goals

The project intends to enhance the riparian area of a group of parcels located next to the Chevy Branch of the Big Creek with the installation of a rain garden. The goals of the project involve natural re-entry of stormwater into the watershed as a means to decrease soil erosion in the creek, as well as increasing the biodiversity of the area through the installation of trees, native plants, and landscapes.

About ReImagining a More Sustainable Cleveland:
Re-Imagining Greater Cleveland is a pragmatic, data driven strategy for the management and reuse of vacant properties in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. The initiative builds on the work began in the 2007 Re-Imagining a More Sustainable Cleveland study, which was led by nonprofit community development organization Neighborhood Progress, Inc. (NPI) and Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative.
