ULI Idaho – Harvesting the Value of Water:
Stormwater, Green Infrastructure, and Real Estate
February 22nd, 8:00-10:00a CenterPlace Regional Event Center
2426 N. Discovery Way, Spokane Valley WA
“As cities increasingly require private developments to incorporate stormwater management mechanisms, green infrastructure is likely to become part of business as usual. Real estate projects that harness the opportunities presented by stormwater management systems will see the benefits, particularly in terms of the design of public and outdoor spaces and opportunities for operational and land use efficiencies.”
The growing involvement of the real estate industry in helping municipalities manage stormwater runoff with systems using natural resources is explored in a new Urban Land Institute (ULI) publication, Harvesting the Value of Water: Stormwater, Green Infrastructure, and Real Estate .
Come hear from the primary author of the report followed by a local panel of experts that will share successful case studies and lessons learned.
