We will share details on the support being made available in two neighbourhoods, to help them become more rain ready, at the official launch of a new initiative by REEP Green Solutions. The Rain Ready Neighbourhoods project provides the opportunity and means for people to transform their neighbourhood to be more flood-resistant and sustainable. The neighbourhoods will receive support in landscaping and flood-proofing their yards while simultaneously capturing and soaking in rain water.
After the formal launch, there is an optional tour of Lakeside Park.
The three-year program is funded by the Ontario Trillium Foundation. Partners in the program are Partners For Action, Green Communities Canada and the City of Kitchener, which is also providing some funding.
