Implement And Evaluate
Plans for green infrastructure and urban forestry overlap with a myriad of other plans. Many of these plans, including regional transportation, watershed, education, public health, public works, energy conservation, and climate resilience can shape the future of a community’s urban forest and green infrastructure implementation.
Most communities find that key parts of their green infrastructure and urban forestry plan must be implemented by other agencies. To ensure good outcomes, participating agencies should engage in the planning process from the beginning, and strive to integrate relevant components of green infrastructure and urban forestry into their own future plans.
As the plan unfolds, the convening body and steering committee should meet periodically to check the plan’s execution and adapt strategy as needed.
