On the corner is a parcel of land where water is funneled when it rains to soak through trees and grasses back into the water table. All of the newer neighborhoods have these spots.
These parcels weren’t included in the older neighborhoods. So, the city created rain gardens in key spots. The area has many hills. These rain gardens jut out into the street a few feet and capture the rain water as it runs downhill and feeds it into long, grassy nook where it is filtered back into the ground.
It is a clever way of finding space for a new idea that didn’t fit into the older neighborhood. Sometimes new ideas fit differently into things that already exist than they do when they are created from scratch. How are you making space in your organization for new ideas?
