It seems as though every day the topic of heavy rains and flooding is in the news. In recent times many homeowners across Ontario have experienced localized flooding and severe damage to their homes and community infrastructure. It can happen here too. The good news is that we can take action to protect our homes and neighbourhoods from flooding.

Reep Green Solutions in partnership with the City of Waterloo, would like to invite you to participate in a unique opportunity to have your say in the future of the outdoor space in the Sugarbush neighbourhood. Use your first-hand knowledge of the area to contribute ideas for adding green spaces in your community. The Greening Sugarbush North Neighbourhood and Reducing Flood Risk  workshop will draw from residents’ observations and combine them with experts’ insights to create a vision that will improve your neighbourhood’s capacity to handle large storms and enhance the everyday quality of life for community members.

All are welcome to participate. It is free to attend, but we ask that you please register in advance to reserve your spot. Refreshments will be provided. Please contact bgrant@reepgreen.ca if you have any dietary restrictions for us to accommodate.
