The GIC created a Planning Guide for New York State in 2013. A pilot project was conducted in Ulster County, NY. The guide provides the steps for any NY county to create their own landscape-scale green infrastructure plans. The guide was funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Healthy Watersheds Initiative in partnership with the Green Infrastructure Center, the Cadmus Group, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYDEC) and Ulster County New York.
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens stated “Thanks to the support of EPA and the work of the GIC, this guide provides Ulster County and other counties in the state comprehensive information about its natural resources to strategically plan for maximum social, economic and environmental benefits,” “As the Cuomo Administration strives to develop more resilient critical infrastructure systems through the Governor’s NYS2100 Commission, this guide will help local officials capitalize on the concepts of the Commission. County by county, this is a blueprint for statewide sustainability.”
