Creve Coeur OKs incentives for eco-friendly landscaping

CREVE COEUR • Creve Coeur residents now have an incentive to make their properties more eco-friendly.

The City Council on Monday night approved a resolution that allows the city to partner with the Deer Creek Watershed Alliance in promoting rainscaping, an alternative landscaping method that more efficiently deals with storm water runoff.

Residents who implement approved rainscape features are eligible for a rebate of up to $2,000 to help with the cost.

The Deer Creek Watershed Alliance is a project of the Missouri Botanical Garden that aims to improve the water quality of Deer Creek, a watershed that originates in Creve Coeur and flows through several neighboring municipalities.

All Creve Coeur homeowners are eligible to receive the rebate, not just those whose homes border the watershed, said Stacy Arnold of the alliance.
