Learn more about this integrated planning approach and hear from Walkable Watershed Community Partners on how:
- local governments can integrate community input into infrastructure investment projects
- cities and watershed organizations can work to build stewardship in communities that haven’t typically embraced waterways as an asset
- community-based planning efforts can reach and meaningfully involve a neighborhood that has been disenfranchised or has a history of distrust
The webinar featured:
- Skeo staff providing an overview of the walkable watershed concept, snapshots from Walkable Watershed communities, and a discussion on how this approach can address environmental justice concerns and leverage community building and collaborative decision making for a lasting impact.
- Local government and non-profit organization representatives sharing how a walkable watershed approach has been beneficial to their work and leveraged additional resources.
