Event Description

Keynote Presentation:

Woodbriar Park Renovation: The Successful Integration of Stormwater Management, Community Recreation, Environmental Art, and Ecological Enhancement.

Repeated stormwater flooding of the residential neighborhood prompted the City of Greeley to seek options for better stormwater management. The Woodbriar Park Renovation improved an existing 7-acre neighborhood park to include flood control storage while enhancing a highly-valued community open space. Unique project elements included collaborative community engagement; a multi-functional detention facility and separate natural creek channel; integration of environmental art with the creek; and site-sensitive nature play recreation.

Keynote Speaker:
