“Stormwater” may not be the sexiest word in the lexicon—but effectively dealing with stormwater is a challenge for Chattanooga and is, in fact, affecting the bottom line for residents and businesses.
On Thursday night, July 10, green|spaces sponsors the LID (Low Impact Development) Competition Finale, in which 13 teams will show off designs that incorporate better places for all of us while reducing the impact of stormwater. The event is open to the public.
The winning team receives a $10,000 cash prize ($3,000 to second place winners and $1,000 for third place). One finalist will be selected as People’s Choice Winner with a prize of $2,000. After listening to all the presentations, the audience will select their favorite via a live voting system.
Local developers and leaders will be part of the audience, and the hope is that some of the projects will go on to be incorporated into a “green infrastructure.”
The event schedule is: 5 p.m. cocktails, 5:30-8 p.m. presentations, 8:30 p.m. winners announced. Location: Loose Cannon, 1800 Rossville Ave. For more information on the competition, visit greenspaceschattanooga.com/lid-competition
