AFTER THE STORM IS TOO LATE.
CURE continues to highlight irrational decisions that permit more development in flood prone areas. Here’s an excellent article from the Economist outlining the benefits of early mitigation. Don’t let your local government continue to put more people in harms way. Learn the facts and demand better. In the end, all off us pay when flooding happens. Flood mitigation investment returns positive benefits that go beyond dollars and cents.
The Economist Intelligence Unit found that investment to make homes and infrastructure more flood-proof returns positive economic, environmental, and social benefits for communities. We reveal the flood mitigation actions, challenges and benefits for 11 flood-affected communities across the US. http://www.floodeconomics.com

LOCAL AGRICULTURE, FROM START TO FARMING
CURE supports local sustainable Ag as part of high school project and curriculum.The Riverside Unified School District is developing the iconic property at Victoria and Central into a sports field. CURE retained a prominent architect to develop a design that includes 1.4 acres of sustainable agriculture (in addition to the new field) allowing students to learn about food systems, grow crops, and potentially net well over $100,000 annually in sales for programs. (Reference Urban Farmer) We feel this is a win-win for the community. See CURE’s position on the Poly Property HERE.
