Green InfrastructureThe Council of Governments' Green Infrastructure program involves periodic forums and the production of maps and other materials. Recent products include maps based on satellite imagery. Consult the menu at the right for more information.
Green Infrastructure is defined as:
I think there’s an opportunity to look at how we regenerate
communities and ecologies by looking at green space as a form of infrastructure
like roads, water lines, and sewers. When we talk about green infrastructure
in the Washington [D.C.] area, we talk about everything from window
boxes, to Rock Creek Park and in between: it’s urban gardens,
residential landscaping, pocket parks, landscaped portions of a development
parcel, linear parks, riparian buffers, street trees, parkways, farms
and large parks and reserves.
Current work is sponsored by the National Park Service and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.
