More Bang for the Buck: Integrating Green Infrastructure into Existing Public Works Projects

Topic Overview:
Integrating green infrastructure into “business as usual” in city, state and regional public works projects is one of the most efficient ways to achieve wide scale and cost effective implementation. This webcast will share lessons learned from both municipal and county officials experienced in the art of coordinating green infrastructure improvements with scheduled street improvements, parks improvements and projects on public sites. Integrating green infrastructure into existing public works projects and Capital Improvement Plans (CIPs) can help different government departments identify the most impactful and cost effective opportunities for green practices.
