EPA Releases Green Infrastructure in Parks

*EPA Releases Green Infrastructure in Parks: A Guide to Collaboration, Funding, and Community Engagement

EPA recently released a document titled Green Infrastructure in Parks: A Playbook for Collaboration, Funding, and Community Engagement. The playbook is intended to encourage partnerships between park agencies and stormwater agencies and provide a roadmap for creating them. By building strong partnerships, agencies can improve park lands and access to parks, better manage stormwater, increase community resiliency to changing weather patterns, and provide funding to implement and maintain park enhancements that benefit the community.

The guide is designed to provide a stepwise approach for building relationships with potential partners, and includes information on how to identify and engage partners, build relationships, involve the community, leverage funding opportunities, and identify green infrastructure opportunities.
