2017 Planning Excellence Award – Plan Other Than a Comprehensive Plan
Community Greening Plan: A Green Stormwater Infrastructure Plan for Harrisburg
Capital Region Water
With the Community Greening Plan, Capital Region Water, the water infrastructure utility for the City of Harrisburg, committed to implementing green stormwater infrastructure throughout the city. Capital Region’s unique plan is driven by the community. The plan staged “community greening parties” and engaged over a thousand residents from every neighborhood, many of whom became Community Ambassadors in leadership roles. The plan includes city-wide analysis of opportunities to implement green infrastructure and provides illustrations and guidance for incorporating green infrastructure in homes, neighborhoods, streets and alleys, schools, parks, and vacant lots.
