Southland Drive Green Infrastructure Feasibility Study

In Fall 2012, the Southland Association, a non-profit organization was awarded a Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government water quality incentive class B grant. The grant focus was to study the practicality of implementing green infrastructure practices on private commercial properties located on or near the Southland Drive corridor.

The purpose of the Southland Drive Green Infrastructure Feasibility Study is to develop a comprehensive understanding and vision for implementing environmentally and financially sustainable stormwater management practices along the corridor. This plan includes a set of tools to guide property and business owners in selecting best management practices to reduce their operational costs while improving the quality of stormwater and reducing runoff. This study’s broad goal is to transform the landscape of Southland by creating a catalyst for change along the avenue.
