GREENPLAN PHILADELPHIA PDF

Breaking down Philadelphia into geographic sections, the study found the trend has been a reduction of the canopy to a point that it covers less than one percent of Center City. The target of many cities is a 30 percent canopy, and Philadelphia has adopted that goal. Besides increasing the tree canopy, steps include improving water infiltration in a variety of ways, use of rain barrels for water storage, and re-use of land for urban agriculture. In small breakout groups convened after the presentation, residents offered their own ideas on what it will take to bring GreenPlan to fruition. Another resident suggested real estate tax incentives or credits for implementing improvements.

GreenPlan Philadelphia tells it like it is

GreenPlan Philadelphia established a framework and strategic direction, created decision tools, and provided a compelling vision to guide the implementation and provision of parks, open space, and trails within the City of Philadelphia. Considered one the most progressive plans in the nation, GreenPlan Philadelphia provides an integrated and sustainable approach. All actions were identified as one of eight typical green infrastructure interventions, which were evaluated to characterize specific benefits to the city. These elements included trees, trails, renewable energy, external building elements, wetlands, meadows, and urban agriculture. WRT worked closely with city agencies and stakeholders to establish the best practices integrated in the plan. The final product serves as a tool to secure additional funds, forge new collaborations, and strengthen existing partnerships to acquire land and construct additional parks and trails.
