Measuring the Benefits of Trees: The Green Streets Lawrence Health Impact Assessment

Green infrastructure elements such as street trees can play an important role in the mental health, physical activity, and social interaction of community residents. In 2016, Massachusetts planners and members of the American Planning Association’s Sustainable Communities Division (APA-SCD) partnered with Groundwork Lawrence on a volunteer service project to measure the health benefits of Groundwork’s Green Streets Program. Speakers will provide an overview of the Green Streets Program HIA process, and a summary of findings, recommendations, and the resources that were developed by the APA-SCD team to achieve the Program’s goals. This webinar is co-presented by APA-MA. (1.25 CM)
