Greenstreets - Green Infrastructure

Tuesday, Jan 7, 2014

Learn about New York City Parks efforts to implement green infrastructure in the public right-of-way. The session will discuss technical lessons learned from construction as well as performance data gained from research sites.

Launched in 1996, Greenstreets was created to change unused road area into green space. Since its beginning, over 2,500 Greenstreets have been built citywide. In 2010, the Greenstreets program became the Green Infrastructure Unit, expanding their focus to active stormwater capture and partnering with the New York City Department of Environmental Protection to build cost-effective green infrastructure to reduce runoff in priority sewersheds and reach water quality goals.

Sponsors: Urban Green Council Emerging Professionals & Skanska

Speaker: Mary Nunn, RLA, LEED Green Associate, Associate ASLA, Landscape Architect, New York City Department of Parks & Recreation

Date: Tuesday, January 7, 6:30-8:00 pm Networking will continue at our *mandatory* extended happy hour(s) at Legends Bar across the street!

Location: Empire State Building (Skanska office), 350 Fifth Avenue, 32nd Floor
