Webinar: Green Infrastructure & Urban Resiliency

June 6, 2018
1:00 pmto2:00 pm

The Together North Jersey Resilience Webinar Series

This webinar is the second in a three-part series on resiliency planning co-sponsored by the Together North Jersey (TNJ) Resilience Task Force and the North Jersey Transportation Planning Authority (NJTPA).

*Application for .75 AICP CE credits pending*

Numerous communities across North Jersey have turned to Green Infrastructure (GI) as a stormwater management solution, often with community input on planning and design. In an urban setting, GI affords wide-ranging benefits. GI is an economical approach to water management that mimics the natural water cycle through the planting of trees and other vegetation. GI also enhances aesthetics and creates opportunities for traffic calming and pedestrian safety.

This webinar explores:

  • Changes in precipitation caused by climate change and impacts on urban communities
  • The benefits of GI
  • Challenges encountered in implementation and maintenance of GI
  • Examples of successful projects and partnerships throughout the state
  • Available funding opportunities

The presentation will be followed by a 10 minute Q&A.
