The Blueprint Columbus project was created as a response to stormwater runoff issues the city of Columbus, Ohio was faced with. One of the four methods Blueprint Columbus uses to address these problems is green infrastructure, more specifically, rain gardens. When construction began there was a wide range of opinions on the project. This research studied the degree to which being (1) informed about the program, (2) involved in the planning process, and (3) knowledgeable about water quality problems affect support for rain gardens in the neighborhood of Clintonville. It was found that all three have a positive association with support for the raingardens. This study adds to the small but growing body of research on the topic by providing a quantitative assessment as well as providing the unique context that is Columbus, Ohio.
