Platte to Park Hill: Stormwater Systems is taking a comprehensive approach to better protecting people and property against flooding while improving water quality and enhancing public spaces. The program is focused in the near-term on the northern neighborhoods of Elyria, Swansea, Cole, Clayton, Skyland, Whittier, Five Points and Northwest Park Hill. These areas are at risk of severe flooding during storms.
Four projects are part of the Platte to Park Hill: Stormwater Systems program. Each project is being designed independently, but is part of a coordinated construction process to realize cost savings and project efficiencies, as well as ensure compatibility with other nearby improvements.
Collectively, these four coordinated projects will increase neighborhood connectivity, improve water quality, add new park and recreation spaces, as well as provide critical flood protection.
