The Green Streets, Green Jobs, Green Towns grant ensures that we are able to fully implement the green infrastructure components of our streetscape plan, which are so important to our residents. These projects enhance and beautify the heart of our historic district, while managing stormwater and supporting a healthy environment. We are thrilled that our historic town can be a showcase for the value of green infrastructure and the power of incorporating ‘green’ into gray infrastructure capital improvement projects.
