RainReady Calumet Corridor, IL Plan

2017

This plan outlines a vision for stormwater management, sustainable economic development, and integrated planning to enhance resilience within the Calumet Corridor in Cook County, Illinois (20 miles south of Chicago). This area experienced a severe rain and wind storm in April 2013 resulting in urban flooding and widespread property damage. The region’s flat, low-lying topography, historical patterns of land development that covered natural land with impervious surfaces, the changing climate, and aging infrastructure all contribute to the Corridor’s vulnerability to future flooding.

Specific to climate adaptation, the report delineates how regional climate change will disproportionately impact low-income communities in Nashville, and describes how proposed initiatives can be expanded or adjusted to enhance equitable outcomes.
