Green Infrastructure Coalition

2014_10_21_gic_compositeYesterday the Green Infrastructure Coalition (GIC is a bunch of organizations including Clean Ocean Access) went on a tour of downtown Newport near Discover Newport and the lower point section and reviewed some upcoming projects, historical docks, land that should be preserved, homes that have been lifted and talked about storm water, waste water and sea-level rise. No one has the answer, but we believe the answer will come by people talking with each other and so we are happy to be part of the GIC. Our involvement in GIC takes a little bit from our OCEAN and WATERSHED and ACCESS programs and brings it together as part of the Green Infrastructure Initiative. Thanks to Lauren and Meg for making it happen and all the folks that came out on a rather nice Tuesday afternoon! If you want to get involved, contact us. Thanks!
