There are kids on my block and kids spend time in my yard. Why didn’t you select it for the pilot block initiative?

All blocks were considered for the pilot block initiative and were prioritized based on child occupancy and lead levels in the soil. If your block has a relatively high number of children and elevated soil lead levels, it may be a candidate for a future block program.

Other considerations that may factor into the selection of blocks in the future include ground cover, accessibility for equipment and willingness of the neighbourhood to participate.

If you have not had your soil assessed, consider getting it tested this year so the information is included for potential future block initiatives.
