BCG has assisted in the completion of strategic community driven tasks for the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC) Green Infrastructure Project. Green Infrastructure provides a network of the “ingredients” for solving urban and climatic challenges by building with nature. BCG community liaisons worked closely with the construction management team to develop a detailed customized outreach plan, create posters and visual material, meet with Community Boards, local community-based organizations, elected officials, city-wide advocates, property owners, utility companies, and stakeholders, provide implementation and construction schedule. BCG provided a full-time Community Construction Liaison to support the project. The primary objective of the Green Infrastructure Program was to reduce Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and improve water quality while enhancing the City’s urban environment. The project was designed to control storm water at its source and to reduce the need for end-of-pipe storm water storage and treatment systems by managing storm water through controlled release, infiltration, and evapotranspiration “green” infrastructure technologies.
