The scope and severity of flood risk and flood-related damages in the Chatham community are among the worst in Cook County, Illinois. In September 2013, CNT began its Chatham program outreach through the RainReady initiative. This document is a product of this initiative, in partnership with resident leaders, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineeers, and CNT's funders and supporters. It builds upon our earlier publication, RainReady Chatham Phase One Report, and provides a comprehensive community-first plan that includes solutions on multiple scales: the individual property, the street and neighborhood, and the community.

What would a RainReady Midlothian look like? It would be a community where residents and businesses benefit from flood relief in a way that also brings neighborhood beautification, retail activity, jobs, recreation, and habitat conservation. In order to better understand Midlothian’s flood risk, the Center for Neighborhood Technology, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Floodlothian Midlothian, and the Village of Midlothian joined together in January 2015. Throughout 2015, this group met monthly, hosted three community meetings, conducted a survey of 253 residents, and published the RainReady Midlothian Interim Report, an account of existing flood risk in the village. Together, we have established a shared vision for a RainReady Midlothian, summarized in this report.

Chatham, a neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, has been susceptible to flooding since it was first developed in the 1860s. In January 2015, the Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), and a group of neighborhood flood victims joined together to launch RainReady Chatham to look for solutions. This report presents the findings of our flood risk analysis and preliminary suggestions for how to fix Chatham's flooding problems.
