United States Green Capitols Program

United States

Nevue Ngan Associates is assisting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in helping implement green street projects at all 50 state capitols including the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. By prominently showcasing green infrastructure to policy makers and the general public, the program's goals are to spread green infrastructure technologies throughout the nation and to build local capacity for landscape architects to implement green street projects. Since its inception in November 2008, four states have undergone conceptual design projects and two are planning phased construction in 2009.  Nevue Ngan Associates has visited another 12 capitol cities in the last year to analyze the potential for green infrastructure retrofit opportunities.
