Monday, Dec. 17 - Main Street Green Infrastructure Conceptual Plan
6 - 8 p.m., Pip Moyer Recreation Center, 273 Hilltop Lane, Annapolis
The City of Annapolis Office of Environmental Policy received a $15,000 grant award through the Chesapeake Bay Trust to produce a conceptual plan that incorporates green infrastructure practices into historic downtown Annapolis. This area of the City lacks sufficient treatment of stormwater that flows directly into Spa Creek, and suffers from the urban heat island effect in the summer due to the lack of green space and trees. The City has hired local landscape architecture firm Campion Hruby to produce a conceptual plan. Public input will be incorporated into the plan through three public meetings; this is the first.
