Comprehensive guide to revitalizing a severely depressed, depopulated industrial neighborhood. Covers all topics: costs, benefits, practices, even urban agriculture.
The goal of this project was to help incorporate green infrastructure into the Redevelopment Plan of the economically disadvantaged neighborhood of Northside in Spartanburg, SC. Green infrastructure can help realize the vision of a more vibrant, livable Northside by promoting many community objectives. To achieve the objectives, the project incorporated green infrastructure principles such as green space, street trees, urban agriculture, and a riparian greenway.
