New green infrastructure website/resource for Allegheny County

I want to introduce everyone to a new Green Infrastructure tool that we’ve been working on in the Pittsburgh office:

This was an effort of the Green Infrastructure Network in Pittsburgh to catalog GI projects in the region.  An intern with the Nine Mile Run watershed association and City of Pittsburgh compiled the initial list and created the attribute fields that would be collected for each location.  I’ve attached a file with those fields.  Our hope is that we can populate the map with projects from around the state, starting with the projects that PEC has been involved in.  If you would like to add a project, complete the location attribute spreadsheet and send it to me along with any pictures.
