June 7: APA PA Webinar Wednesday – Checking the Boxes with Green Infrastructure

Checking the Boxes with Green Infrastructure

What are the impacts of trees? Maintenance costs, economic benefits, equity considerations, health factors, stormwater implications, regulatory challenges… This session will look at the multi-dimensionality of green infrastructure (not just trees!) and the long-term vision for risk reduction and health improvement with planner and municipal action opportunities woven throughout. Speakers will raise some considerations specific to active transportation and climate change as well. The discussion will provide a framework for recognizing the compound impacts of natural systems and incorporating systemic benefits into planning processes. It will also touch on practical techniques for reducing apparent conflicts between trees and paving surfaces and space competition between green infrastructure and active transportation.

Sustainability/Resilience CM credit is pending approval. You must attend the webinar live in order to earn CM credit.
