Revitalizing Vacant Land and Reducing Run-off
With many local governments taking on tremendous efforts to improve water quality, vacant lots may be an underutilized resource. Localities are under various demands to balance water quality improvements, with increased economic growth, and opportunities to improve quality of life for residents. Could revitalizing vacant parcels be a viable option towards each of the goals? This workshop provides a forum for those discussions. One presentation will highlight the Town of
Herndon’s , where stormwater is being reduced and water quality improved by design choices made for the urban park. Another will explore the City of Arrowhead Park ’s recent Vacant Lands Assessment. We also look forward to discussing how these concepts may play a role in meeting the Chesapeake Bay TMDL requirements Richmond .
