Practices incorporated into the concept plan included permeable pavement, curbside bioretention planter boxes, and tree box systems to accept runoff from adjacent impermeable areas. The project demonstrated that green street features can offset a portion of the stormwater requirements of the adjacent parcels -- with investments competitive to on-site management -- and simultaneously provide all the other benefits associated with green infrastructure.
