City of Avondale Low Impact Development Street Tree Master Plan Supplement for Integrating Green Stormwater Infrastructure
The Green Stormwater Infrastructure Supplement to the Street Tree Master Plan provides guiding principles, standard street details, and performance metrics to ensure optimal design and performance of green stormwater infrastructure practices integrated into Avondale’s roadways. Stormwater utilization to support street trees will help facilitate a sustainable, resilient City of Avondale with a unified and distinguished sense of place. Stormwater is a critical water resource that can be integrated and managed as part of a community’s water portfolio safely and cost effectively through low impact development (LID) strategies. Green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) as a practice within LID serves to restore natural hydrological function while supporting associated landscapes and provides for a range of co-benefits including heat island mitigation, stormwater pollutant remediation, traffic calming, water conservation, etc.
