Explore how Green Streets can be a sustainable stormwater management strategy that also contributes to community redevelopment. Many Midwestern cities are using ‘green street’ strategies in place of routine street rehabilitation to address stormwater, transportation, and neighborhood stabilization goals. By combining transportation choice with environmental strategies, a green street product can support redevelopment efforts from multiple stakeholder perspectives.  Attendees will see a blend of planning, engineering, and neighborhood revitalization strategies from each panelist in a case study format.

This webinar will focus on several green streets pilot projects in Lansing, MI; Toledo, OH; and Chicago, IL. From the rainwater management strategies to the materials used in the street infrastructure, there are many elements of a street rehabilitation project that can ‘go green’ to assist with sustainability objectives and neighborhood stabilization.

Webinar speakers will include:
·        David Leopold, City of Chicago, IL

·        Chad Gamble, City of Lansing, MI

·        Dan Christian, Tetra Tech

·        Patekka Bannister, City of Toledo, OH


No webinar cost, however, attendees need to reserve a webinar seat in advance at: https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/968278187


HUD, DOT, and EPA representatives will highlight the federal and state options to use agency funding to implement green streets projects in your community.  This free webinar is a Region 5 EPA & DOT program aimed at municipal staff, local officials, and technical consultants about the practical implementation of the Livability Principles that are the basis for the Partnership for Sustainable Communities.
