Green Streets: Filtering and Slowing Stormwater, Revitalizing Neighborhoods & Making Streets Safer

| |

Recorded webinar presents Kansas City’s Middle Blue River Basin Green Solutions Pilot Project and the significant role that right-of-ways along streets play in controlling stormwater runoff, including what Kansas City has learned about

  1. building and maintaining community support of Green Streets,
  2. ensuring the long-term success of Green Streets, and
  3. the positive impacts Green Streets are having on local waterways and neighborhoods.

From Hawkins Partners, Inc., learn how to conduct an assessment to determine the potential for Green Streets that can be used to garner critical support for them in your community.

This technique was developed as part of a River Network project supported by the Surdna Foundation.
