GREENING OUR STREETS
2008 URBAN WATERSHEDS REVITALIZATION CONFERENCE
Date: Friday, October 31, 2008
Time: 8:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.
Location: Community College of Philadelphia
We plan to explore what constitutes a green street, present the vision that is guiding the movement toward green streets, and provide insight into how our region can move forward by turning the vision into a reality. We will explore how to improve stormwater management on public right-of-ways, while also beautifying communities, providing economic incentives, and creating other environmental benefits and amenities. The conference will focus on demonstration projects and case studies in Philadelphia and in the nearby suburbs, as well as the work and experience of regional and national design and engineering experts.
