Green Infrastructure Manual for Southwestern Neighborhoods

This manual provides information for neighborhood residents, municipal professionals, grassroots advocates and others who seek to implement green infrastructure (GI) strategies in their communities. It offers a neighborhood-centered perspective on GI that is tailored to work with the unique climate conditions of the southwestern US. The guide includes detailed, step-by-step approaches for designing, constructing, and maintaining GI practices that can be used to retrofit existing neighborhoods, including: curb cuts and basins in rights-of-ways, chicanes, medians, traffic circles, street width reductions, and parking lots.
