Workshops are scheduled in Atlanta; Portland, Ore.; Racine, Wis.; and Manchester, N.H., this summer. They will focus on the ways that LID conserves open space, reduces flooding, improves water quality, and reduces development and long-term maintenance costs. Workshop content includes information for private developers and public officials on incorporating LID into communities and methods for private and public officials to facilitate the use of LID within their communities. Low impact development experts and local guest speakers from county governments and building community will provide local perspectives on LID.
