About this book

From New York City's urban forest and farmland in Virginia to riverside parks in Vancouver, Washington, green infrastructure is becoming a priority across America. 

A practical guide to creating effective plans and then implementing them, Strategic Green Infrastructure Planning presents a six-step process developed by the Green Infrastructure Center in Charlottesville, Virginia. Each step, from setting goals to implementing opportunities, can be applied to a variety of scenarios, customizable to the reader's target geographical location. Chapters draw on diverse case studies, from the Sonoran Desert to Jersey City. Abundant full color maps, photographs, and illustrations complement the text. 

The book is essential reading for planners, elected officials, developers, conservationists, and others interested in the creation and maintenance of open space lands and urban green infrastructure projects or promoting a healthy economy.
