ONGOING PROJECTS & INITIATIVES

FRANKLIN PARK AND DUNROVIN

-Rethinking Rain Water-A Franklin Park Community-2018

 

Areas throughout DeWitt are prone to flooding due to flat topography, lack of trees, and outdated infrastructure. As a way to promote green infrastructure, manage stormwater, and improve the water quality in Onondaga Lake and its tributary Ley Creek, the Town has applied for a grant to implement porous pavement on Richwood Drive in Franklin Park.

 

This proposed project would construct a 26 foot wide porous pavement area with underground storage along Richwood Drive to create additional capacity to handle water during storms. This area would be capable of capturing over 500,000 gallons of water. The project would also facilitate water infiltrating the soils and keeping water from impacting homes in the area during storm events.

 

This project is in addition to the Save the Rain project that provided rain barrels and trees to the community as well as improved drainage to areas of Park Hill.

 

A meeting will be held Monday 9/17/18 starting at 6:30 PM at 148 Sanders Creek, East Syracuse in the DeWitt Community Room. Residents are invited to attend the informal meeting to discuss concerns about drainage, stormwater, or details of the proposed project.
