This month, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) released six RainReady plans for the Calumet Corridor communities of Blue Island, Calumet City, Calumet Park, Dolton, Riverdale, and Robbins. The plans, whose development was funded via the County’s Community Development Block Grant Disaster Recovery Program, establish a distinct path forward in each town to reduce systemic flooding issues while creating more beautiful, economically vibrant communities.
To celebrate the release of the plans and honor the agencies and community leaders who have made it a success, CNT and its partners are holding a Calumet Corridor Launch Party on Wednesday, March 22nd at South Suburban College, beginning at 5:30 pm. Featured speakers include Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle, Metropolitan Water Reclamation District Board President Mariyana Spyropoulos, and United States Army Corps of Engineers Colonel Christopher T. Drew. To register, please visit www.cnt.org/events.
