San Mateo County Sustainable Green Streets and Parking Lots Design Guidebook
NNA Landscape Architecture created the San Mateo County Sustainable Green Streets and Parking Lots Design Guidebook to assist 21 local municipalities in the San Francisco Bay Area in implementing green street and sustainable parking lot demonstration projects. This comprehensive, technical guidebook provides designers, engineers, builders, municipalities, policymakers, and other interested groups with comprehensive options for incorporating green streets and parking lots into infrastructure projects. While developed specifically for San Mateo County, the guidebook is a practical tool for any municipality looking to invest in green infrastructure, and has become nationally recognized for providing simple and beautiful ways to integrate stormwater management with urban design.
The guidebook received the 2009 California American Planning Association’s award for Innovation in Green Community Planning, as well as the 2011 ASLA Professional Design Award of Honor.
