Green Infrastructure Development in Central New York
The two presentations will cover the development of green infrastructure in Central New York area –particularly those forms of GI that can slow or reduce urban runnoff such as green roofs, rain gardens, drainage swales, urban vegetation, and treatment wetlands. We will cover the development of GI in CNY, benefits and detriments of GI, as well as efficiency of performance of GI functions. Specifically the On Center green roof will be reviewed in more detail. We also will cover recent results of neighborhood receptivity to GL implementation in Syracuse from a National Science Foundation /US Forest Service sponsored study.
