An often-overlooked element of successful stormwater project implementation is meaningful community engagement. Working with key stakeholder early in the project planning phase, often before the final site selection or initial design, will ensure that the project meets a local need and has the buy-in of community members.
In this webinar, we will hear from two 2021 Best Urban BMP in the Bay Award winners: The Upper Watts Branch Restoration, and the Mount Olivet Cemetery Green Infrastructure Project. Each of these projects faced unique challenges that were overcome by working closely with the property owners, local residents, and community stakeholders through every step of design and construction. The result, was a pair of award-winning projects that now boast the support of their local communities.
