Green Infrastructure is increasingly being used in communities both large and small as an innovative and environmentally-friendly way to manage stormwater runoff from paved areas. As an added bonus, many green infrastructure strategies — like vegetated roofs, rain gardens, bioswales and pervious pavement — can also improve aesthetics and increase property values.

This workshop will provide a basic introduction to green infrastructure, and will be geared toward a broad audience of municipal officials, planners, and community volunteers who are not engineers or water quality professionals. Using case studies from Sullivan County and neighboring counties, guest speaker and environmental planner Simon Gruber will talk about the many benefits of green infrastructure, including water quality, beautification, wildlife habitat and community revitalization.

Planning and Zoning Board members will receive a certificate of completion for 1.5 hours of continuing education credit.

Refreshments will be served.
