Green infrastructure approaches, such as incorporating trees and rain gardens into street designs, can help communities better manage stormwater while achieving other environmental, public health, social, and economic benefits, allowing communities to achieve more for their money. This webinar, Creating a Green Infrastructure Plan to Transform Your Community, will discuss how three different organizations—a regional association of governments, a local government, and a nonprofit organization—have developed and implemented plans for using green infrastructure to achieve multiple goals. The webinar will also cover EPA’s report, Enhancing Sustainable Communities With Green Infrastructure, a guidebook to help communities engage stakeholders to develop a vision for how green infrastructure can transform their communities and a plan to achieve that vision.
