FMATS has recently adopted a Green Streets Policy which is being considered for adoption by its local jurisdictions. This policy encourages best practices for the management of storm water, or urban runoff, using, where practicable, native and site-adapted vegetation and landscaping and other related environmental design features. The attendee will learn of several examples where BMPs have been employed within the city before and after the adoption of the policy. The team will also demonstrate the collaborative effort between many agencies, organizations and private landowners that has improved the urbanized ecosystem and enhanced the aesthetics of the area.
