This scorecard will help you evaluate local progress in implementing green infrastructure (low impact development) approaches to stormwater management and to identify priority next steps.
The Soak it Up! Toolkit will give examples and inspiration from other communities that have made progress on many of these issues.

A note about ratings. You will be asked to rate strength of various policies and programs in your community. This is very subjective, and the goal is not to give a definitive “score” for anything – rather, it should be based on the opinions of knowledgeable insiders in your community, and its main purpose is to provide a benchmark to measure against future improvements. Feel free to leave off any ratings you don’t feel comfortable providing, and give explanations for your ratings in the comments section. Your community’s individual ratings will not be shared publicly. Any public sharing of results will be amalgamated to ensure anonymity.
How long will it take? For someone who has been working on this issue in their community already, it may take less than an hour. For someone totally unfamiliar, it will take longer, and require internet searching and interviews with key municipal partners or other knowledgeable local players (these may include, but are not limited to, stormwater managers, sustainability officers, or conservation authority staff). Ideally, you will find one highly knowledgeable key informant to help fill in most of the blanks.
We recommend filling in those questions which you can answer immediately and skipping those you aren’t able to answer. After you submit the survey you can go back at any time and edit your response to add in additional information. You will be emailed a copy of your responses.
Please note, you can edit and alter your submission at any time. Once you've worked your way through the pages, hit submit on the last page, you will then be emailed a copy of your submission and a link which will allow you to edit, update, or change your responses at a later date.
