Wetland Construction: Principles, Planning, and Design

August 22, 2018 8:00 amtoAugust 24, 2018 5:00 pm

As state and federal wetland mitigation standards evolve away from an acre-for-acre approach to a focus on replacing wetland functions, understanding the wetland’s “wet part” has never been more critical. This Rutgers University class serves as an introduction to the fundamentals of functional design and provides the means to rapidly assess the distribution of hydrology on your site and create useable hydrographs for presentation of your wetland design.

Webinar: Creative placemaking on vacant properties

August 23, 2018
12:00 pmto1:00 pm

From Center for Community Progress

What is “creative placemaking,” and how can it be used to support the equitable revitalization of vacant properties? In this webinar, we will discuss how arts and culture can be integrated into community planning and development, and highlight key findings from the new report, Creative Placemaking on Vacant Properties: Lessons Learned from Four Cities. The report explores how four cities – Kalamazoo, Michigan; Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania; Newburgh, New York; and Macon, Georgia – used creative placemaking on vacant properties, and details the impacts of their efforts, challenges faced, and lessons learned. By the end of the webinar, participants will gain a deeper understanding of creative placemaking, how it can be used as a tool to revitalize vacant properties, and strategies to engage residents and other local stakeholders in crafting and implementing successful projects.
