Tactical Green Infrastructure
The Tactical Green Infrastructure approach is born out of the need to respond quickly, cost-effectively, and inclusively to the climate crisis. It is a specialized design-build methodology used to identify, design, and construct expedited green infrastructure projects.
These small-scale projects convert both paved and existing underutilized green space into highly functional drought and flood-tolerant landscapes within a few months.
Tactical Green Infrastructure Project Goals
- Demonstrate, through built example how green infrastructure can be quickly implemented, with little expenditure, and with highly impactful results.
- Teach, local design students and emerging young professionals how to design, build, maintain, and advocate for green infrastructure projects using a hands-on teaching approach.
- Promote, the use of Tactical Green Infrastructure by inviting others to participate in the design-build process and tell our story to a wide audience ranging from the local level to an international stage.
- Expand, the use of Tactical Green Infrastructure to allow for the creation of green jobs and insertion of green space in areas throughout the state where it is needed the most.
