The City of Chicago’s Department of Planning and Design developed a pilot project that aims to activate blighted corridors in underserved neighborhoods and use green infrastructure to reduce the risk of basement backups. This project included the design of ten lots along three commercial corridors that are characterized by street-facing public spaces with interspersed plazas, pocket parks, and community gardens.  The innovative designs capture stormwater from the City right-of-way and convey it into the lots for detention. Stormwater monitoring equipment is being installed on three of the sites with a cloud based data management system.
