The transition strategy in this report is a set of coordinated interventions necessary to create sustainable green systems in the Midtown District. Sustainable green systems strive for fully functional stormwater, biodiversity, and resource management practices, as well as sustainable levels of thermal comfort, energy efficiency, and access to green space. The assessment of green systems indicates concern for high temperatures, low vegetation, and insufficient stormwater management. This strategy is based on achieving four specific goals of sustainable green systems, derived from sustainability and livability principles (HUD, 2009). Goal 1. Reduce stormwater loads and harvest water onsite; Goal 2. Reduce potable water consumption; Goal 3. Reduce daytime temperatures; Goal 4. Increase green systems benefits to health, mobility, and the economy.
