The second year Master of Landscape Architecture students were given a tour last week of the Westminster Woods Subdivision Greenway System by the City of Guelph's Engineering Technologist Rachel Ellerman. The greenway stormwater system is an innovative approach through the use of large-scale bioretention facilities. In developing the design, the City, consultants and developers worked together to ensure the success of these stormwater features, which have the added benefits of a native plant corridor, providing both habitat and aesthetics. We appreciate the support that City of Guelph staff provide to our students.
