Gentilly Resilience District

Overview of Projects

The projects of the Gentilly Resilience District are rooted in the knowledge that one type of solution is not enough. In order to address complex issues such as crumbling streets and the overburdened drainage systems and sinking soils that cause them, a suite of approaches is needed in different places to add up to a network of benefits. That is why Gentilly Resilience District projects will take place in streets, in neutral grounds, in parks, on schoolyards, on open lots, and if you want, even at your house!



The projects are designed to reduce risk from flooding and subsidence by creating spaces to capture rainwater in the urban landscape. They are designed to beautify neighborhoods, improve health, and provide opportunities for recreation. When all the elements of a neighborhood are working together to reduce risk and enhance development potential, we are really adapting to thrive!
