    Neighborhood Green Infrastructure – a Parks & People Foundation project

    Parks and People Foundation, through its Urban Research Initiiave, is working with several urban neighborhoods to conduct inventories of their “green infrastructure” – including neighborhood parks, community gardens, street trees, vacant lots, and schoolyards.

    With this information, they seek to create maps which will allow neighborhood residents to assess their natural resources & develop plans for revitalizing and restoring these assets.

    Sustainlane’s 2006 rankings of 50 top US cities for sustainability: Baltimore was # 11th on the list.

    In its summary entitled “Baltimore: A Port Town Reinventing Itself,” Sustainlane states, in part:

    Baltimore’s identity as a working-class port town is undergoing a transformation, as downtown is revitalized, empty lots are converted to community gardens, and shipping centers are transformed into waterfront residential neighborhoods….

    Community gardens, local food, public transportation, and affordability all make Baltimore an excellent place for healthy living. The city could benefit by focusing on developing incentives for green building and clean technology development. By doing so, Baltimore has an opportunity to create an even healthier environment for its residents and visitors.
