Grant award
$80,000

Total project
$302,025

Description
This project will incorporate a bioretention cell, native turf, bioswale and tree trenches into the promenade public gathering space as a demonstration of incorporating water quality practices into the cities infrastructure. This project and planned outreach events will help build community awareness of these practices and associated water quality benefits.

The Promenade currently consists of approximately 24,000 ft squared of impervious landscape pavers underlain by a combination of compacted dirt and previously existing concrete. The area has a history of standing water due to the high volume of runoff draining to the area and inability for storm water to infiltrate.
