Urban greening has the potential to address many challenges in the built environment, from stormwater runoff and flood prevention to reducing greenhouse gases and increasing mental health benefits. As an agent of urban greening, green streets planning incorporates complete streets features with green infrastructure for stormwater management. As local staff prepare specific plans in and around Priority Development Areas, we hope to elevate sustainable redevelopment practices.
The fall Planning Innovations forum, Complete Streets to Green Streets, will provide an in-depth overview of the policy and planning alignment, funding resources, and online tools to support green infrastructure implementation. This forum builds on resources from the EPA Urban Greening Bay Area Initiative, such as the April 2018 release of the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association’s (BASMAAs) Roadmap of Funding Solutions for Sustainable Streets, and shares best practices for aligning specific plans with urban greening master plans
