Green Parking Lots Zoning and Design
This webinar will discuss how Millcreek Township (Erie County) adopted amendments to their zoning regulations that will now require 7% of new or reconstructed parking lots be vegetated - even lots smaller than ½ acre. The economic advantages of green parking lots will also be discussed including recent studies reporting 12% higher income streams on treescaped streets and parking lots. The second part of the webinar will explore the technical and aesthetics side of green parking lot design including examples of how attractive green stormwater management might be incorporated within parking areas for a variety of benefits.
