Green streets are designed to capture rainwater at its source, or as close to where rain falls as possible. Green streets can also help with traffic safety and make a street more walkable and bikeable. Why should I attend? Participants will learn about green streets and help make design decisions in Seaford, Delaware. Attendees will help review initial designs to ensure this project is a success! Input is valued from all community members!
