MPC Seeking Green Infrastructure Information for South Suburbs
The Metropolitan Planning Council, in coordination with the Calumet Stormwater Collaborative, is developing the Green Infrastructure Baseline Inventory to document existing green infrastructure (GI) installations in the Calumet region of Illinois. This dataset will help inform decisions and strategic planning to improve stormwater management across the Calumet region. The Green Infrastructure Baseline Inventory will be a free and publicly accessible resource to document where GI already exists, and how it is performing, to inform future stormwater planning endeavors. Data is being collected now through June 30, 2021. Anyone with information on green stormwater infrastructure in this region is invited to participate by submitting information online at www.metroplanning.org/gibi.
