Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation in the District of North Vancouver – May 2006
Projects at Three Scales
When the District of North Vancouver hosted the first event in the 2006 Showcasing Green Infrastructure Innovation in Metro Vancouver Series, three projects were featured – a lane, a highway and a local community.
- Lower Capilano Lane – Selection of porous pavement to infiltrate rainwater runoff was an outcome of an inter-departmental design charrette where the Water Balance Model was a key decision tool.
- Dollarton Highway – Initiated almost a decade ago, the highway design integrated a pioneer application of rainwater infiltration.
- Maplewood Flats – As redevelopment proceeds, the complete and compact residential area will complement an eco-industrial networking area founded on green infrastructure principles & practices.
