Presenters will share lessons learned in the establishment of the City of Orlando's first EcoDistrict in the Audubon Park Garden District. An EcoDistrict is a Portland-based model of sustainability planning that starts at a community level and works towards policy changes that ensure that sustainability is at the forefront of future land use and infrastructure changes. The framework includes eight focus areas: energy, water, health & wellbeing, access & mobility, community identity, habitat & ecosystem, materials management, and equitable development. Each of the benchmarks will be reviewed and specific goals and achievable action items will be shared for other communities.
