project, this effort developed a set of conceptual green infrastructure recommendations to advance the community’s vision. Recommendations are presented at two scales.

Second, the Conceptual Designs (Section 4) develop green infrastructure scenarios for two land use typologies characteristic of the proposed Redevelopment Plan.
