Batavia, N.Y.: November 2, 2018. New York Sea Grant (NYSG) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration coastal science specialists will be joined by green infrastructure engineers to offer a Green Infrastructure Retrofit Manual Training workshop on November 14, 2018 as part of the 2018 Genesee/Finger Lakes Regional Planning Council (GFLRPC) Fall Local Government Conference at the Quality Inn and Suites in Batavia, N.Y.

Earlier this year, the Great Lakes Commission issued a report outlining steps to increase the adoption of GI in communities across the Great Lakes region.

Participants in the three-hour workshop will receive a free copy of the 189-page manual and its 109-page appendices resource developed by NYSG in partnership with the City of Rochester, Monroe County, NOAA, the Association of State Floodplain Managers, and Barton and Loguidice, D.P.C.

Green infrastructure (GI) is a design strategy that applies a natural systems approach to managing stormwater and creating healthier, more sustainable environments. The application of natural elements to developed areas can help reduce nuisance flooding and enhance property values.

For most municipalities this workshop at the Local Government Conference fulfills state law requiring training for local planning officials. To register for the conference, contact David S. Zorn at GFLRPC, Rochester, N.Y., 585-454-0190 x14, dave.zorn@gflrpc.org.
