Metro Habitat Friendly Development Practices

METRO’s Nature in the Neighborhood program utilizes education, restoration, monitoring and habitat-friendly development practices to ensure a healthy urban ecosystem. GreenWorks was contracted by METRO to conceptualize and develop watercolor illustrations depicting habitat -friendly design solutions for development adjacent to or near urban fish and wildlife habitat. Solutions depict various lands uses (single and multi-family residential; mixed-use; parking areas; and street ROW) and included greenroofs, raingardens, green streets, on-site / neighborhood / regional stormwater detention, treatment and  infiltration features, pervious pavement, reduced pavement surfaces, reduced lawn areas, and downspout disconnects.
