The Economic Value of Urban Parks & Public Spaces

March 06, 2020 - 9:00 am to 11:30 am
CT Main Street Center Headquarters, Eversource
410 Sheldon Street, Hartford, CT 06106

Nearly 80 percent of Americans live in cities and metropolitan areas. Increasingly, those cities are challenged by aging water and transportation systems that are nearing or exceeding their designed capacity. A new focus on flood and other natural disaster resilience is driving city planners to leverage mixed-use infrastructure, including parks, to address civic needs while taking advantage of cost savings and other social benefits.

This workshop utilizes three different sessions to educate participants on landscape architecture and the economic value of urban parks. The third session of this workshops utilizes three case studies to demonstrate how urban parks and public spaces positively serve their respective communities.
