Presenting Green Streets

 GreenWorks has been running around the state presenting on innovative green street projects, including City of Eugene, Lane County, the Oregon APWA, and Willamette Valley Chapter of the Oregon APWA, amongst others.  Stay tuned for more educational opportunities around this green infrastructure solution throughout the region.


Mike Faha is a landscape architect and Principal of GreenWorks in Portland, Oregon. Over his career, Mike has been instrumental in developing and integrating innovative stormwater management strategies throughout Oregon and Washington for many public agencies and private developers. Jason King is a Senior Associate at GreenWorks, focusing on public and private landscape architecture projects that integrate sustainable stormwater seamlessly into the urban fabric.

The presentation will consist of a short introduction of green streets for stormwater management, including a number of lessons learned from around the Pacific Northwest. Using case studies ranging from a variety of street projects, Mike and Jason will show the regulatory drivers behind green streets, and the widespread applicability throughout communities. The presentation will include technical and design details, stormwater function, optimal configuration, maintenance, and potential regional funding opportunities.
