The Ohio Creek Watershed Resilience Project consists of an interdisciplinary team of civil engineers, stormwater engineers, architects, environmental consultants, and ecologists. SCAPE is working closely with the team to realize a watershed-scale design that will make neighborhoods in Norfolk, Virginia more resilient to storm surge, sea level rise, and stormwater flooding. The overall goals of the project include 1) designing the coastal community of the future, 2) creating economic opportunity by advancing efforts to grow existing and new industry sectors, and 3) advancing initiatives to connect communities, deconcentrate poverty, and strengthen neighborhoods. SCAPE is currently developing a design for the large open space between the two neighborhoods of Chesterfield Heights and Grandy Village that will integrate flood risk reduction and green infrastructure with a new community park; a space that will enhance neighborhood resilience, connectivity, and health.
