Streetscape Ecologies

Low-Impact Designs That Mitigate Stormwater Run-Off and Beautify Streets

Green Street treatments, which reduce storm water run-off and improve a street’s ecological performance and sustainability, have emerged as one of a host of key strategies to create a more sustainable streetscape. Bio-swales, permeable pavements, and green alleys are not only improving the ecology of our streets, but beautifying them in the process. Streetscape Ecologies will explore the best and latest examples of green street treatments being deployed in cities across the country, as well as new directions for the future.
