WRT worked with the US EPA, the Region 1 EPA office in Boston, and the Hartford Capital Region Council of Governments (CRCOG) to develop a document that illustrates the best practices in site redevelopment for failed and failing Greyfield sites. Using a case study in Manchester, CT, WRT’s document focuses on the effectiveness of smart growth principles and the importance of approaching smart growth implementation collaboratively across all governmental levels and policy making. The case study approach utilizes model guidelines to turn a defunct shopping center into an affordable, green, mixed-use development, and served as the first public document to launch the Sustainable Communities Initiative in the Connecticut Capitol Region. The work included best practices in energy efficiency and conservation, Green Streets, and a systems approach to stormwater management and water quality protection. The following documents are the series of EPA documents that were published as part of the CRCOG Sustainable Communities Initiative:

From Grey to Green: Sustainable Practices for Redeveloping a Vacant Shopping Center
Together We Can Grow Better: Smart Growth for a Sustainable Connecticut Capitol Region
Smart Growth Guidelines for Sustainable Design and Development
