Please select the FOUR MOST important criteria for determining which surface water projects get constructed:

Response Percent Response Count
Safety: The project reduces a safety risk by decreasing/eliminating the safety impact or frequency of the drainage issue. 49.3% 37
Multiple surface water benefits: The project protects or improves natural resources at or near site, such as water quality, fish habitat, stream/lake/wetland characteristics. 56.0% 42
Community benefit: The project ranking method should give more weight to projects that benefit many people, as opposed to projects that may only benefit a few. 48.0% 36
Community interest: The majority of the community or neighborhood should support the proposed project. 16.0% 12
Time-sensitive opportunity: The project should be prioritized if there are opportunities to coordinate with another project’s implementation, or take advantage of a unique opportunity Ex: one-time funding, leveraging another project timeline or funding 48.0% 36
Meets other City priorities: The project provides other benefits, such as recreation, education, open space, riparian habitat, community livability, wildlife habitat. 40.0% 30
Plan consistency: The project should be ranked highly if it is already identified in an adopted Basin Plan (such as the Zackuse Creek Basin Plan). 21.3% 16
Improves a facility maintenance issue: The project provides a long-term, cost-savings solution to on-going maintenance problem. 49.3% 37
Maintains existing stormwater infrastructure: The project improves, corrects a defect, or removes a threat to existing stormwater infrastructure. 42.7% 32
Accommodates growth: The project expands the effectiveness of City facilities to meet projected impacts of growth and development. 29.3% 22
