Climate Change Adaptation (NY Times Article)

The New York Times published an article yesterday, With Eye on Climate Change, Chicago Prepares for a Warmer Future, about adaptations to climate change.  I was particularly interested in the infrastructure portion of the article as we need to consider infiltration as a means of stormwater, or rainwater, management.  Brick pavers can be quite expensive, but other opportunities in the parking aisles include gravel paver systems or a concave landscape strip without a curb in less dense areas (or T-1 to T-3 along the Urban-to-Rural Transect).
