Montrose Green Infrastructure Site Visit
On November 11th, 2021 we had the opportunity of partnering and meeting with Montrose community residents.
We took a community led tour to locate and pinpoint areas of interest and concern for flooding and improvement. Researches had the opportunity to learn from the residents in greater details about their needs and expectations of having green infrastructure in their community. This step of collaboration has been very helpful in the planning and execution efforts of green infrastructure in the Montrose community. This was just the start of an impactful community project.
Our wonderful project partners who were present in this meeting consisted of the following;
Anthropocene Alliance: Harriet Festing and Stephen Eisenman - Founders
Texas A&M University: Dr. Galen Newman - Director of Center for Housing and Urban Development,
Dr. John Cooper - Associate Professor of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning Department and Jingxi Peng - Student
Texas Sea Grant: Ashley Bennis - Planning Specialist
Texas A&M University Agrilife Extension - Green Infrastructure for Texas (GIFT): Charriss York - Program Director
City of Port Arthur: Kenneth Marks – Councilman District 4
