Front Yard Initiative and Stormwater Management with Urban Conservancy
The Front Yard Initiative, Urban Conservancy’s response to excessive yard paving, is an incentive program working to improve New Orleans’ safety, stormwater management, and beauty. The program works with homeowners to find successful water management practices for their yards and monetarily reimburses homeowners for a portion of the approved projects. Urban Conservancy’s Executive Director, Dana Eness, and Program Manager, Emily Snyder, will discuss the Front Yard Initiative and answer questions about how projects qualify, while also teaching other ways to improve drainage and implement sustainable stormwater management.
