Stormwater Systems as Development Incentives

The GreaterPlaces website gathered information from the "Shared Stormwater Systems as Economic Incentives" panel at the 2014 APA National Conference to outline how shared stormwater systems can enhance the environment and retain business.

Danielle Gallet of Center for Neighborhood Technology and Lisa Nisenson of the tech start-up GreaterPlaces created the presentation, which is available on the web page summing up the presentation.

The presentation flowed through three groups of findings and arguments:

  1. Making the case for better stormwater design and meeting multiple goals at once (on that latter point.
  2. A public opinion survey of land developers about stormwater systems.
  3. Innovative practices in green infrastructure, including trading and transfer of development rights, EcoDistricts, and graphic design for educational materials.

The web page summing the presentation also provides key takeaways from the session.
