Cannon Road Green Streets

As a part of the County's effort in protecting our waters, the neighborhood surrounding Cannon Road was selected for a Green Street project to help reduce stormwater pollution that drains into our streams. Green Streets projects generally involve installing small-scale stormwater practices within the County right-of-way to capture water from roadways and sidewalks during storms.

Residents within the Cannon Road project area can also help reduce stormwater pollution by installing stormwater practices on their property through the County's Targeted RainScapes Neighborhood program.

Various public events will be held throughout the project phases for residents to learn about the project and to provide input on the design of the project. Check out the Project Schedule at the bottom of the page for more information!
