RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods Project

Our RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods project is working with the Lakeside and Mount Hope neighbourhoods in Kitchener.

Homeowners will receive support to:

  • Beautify your homes with landscapes that manage rain;
  • Reduce risk of flooding from storms; and,
  • Work with your neighbours to green your streets.

You must live in one of these neighbourhoods to participate.

Incentives available

We now have financial incentives for homes in our RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods for the types of projects we have listed on our RAIN Smart Homes page and are eligible for stormwater credits in the City of Kitchener.

Learn more and get started! The incentives are available on a first come, first served basis.

Work with our RAIN Coach

Our RAIN Coach will be concentrating her efforts in our RAIN Smart Neighbourhoods as part of a strategy to motivate community action to achieve stormwater abatement. Our goal is to deliver 100 coach consultations between the spring of 2017 and the fall of 2018.
