Penn State Center for Green Infrastructure and Stormwater Management Conference

Asked May 22, 2013, 4:29 PM EDT

Good afternoon. I am managing a Green Stormwater Infrastructure Industry Partnership in Philadelphia. The Partnership is in response to the Philadelphia Water Department's innovative Green Cities Clean Waters policy and the growth in the local economy that research indicates will result from PWD's 25-year $2.4 bil investment. We have convened a focus group of small business leaders that represent the various sectors that make up the GSI Industry. One of the topics we are addressing are the barriers to small businesses and to industry growth. I also participate on a committee of Philadelphia area developers and large landowners that are talking about similar topics relevant to these larger firms and large landholders. I'd love to connect and pool/share resources so we can better tackle these issues and grow the green stormwater infrastructure industry. Please let me know when someone from this department/committee/center has 30 minutes for a phone call. Thanks! Looking forward to connecting!
