The Race is Really the Prize: Ecodistrict Planning and Aggregated Action

948 views

Published on

Presented By: Christine Mondor, AIA, LEED AP, evolveEA; Justin Miller, City of Pittsburgh; Anna Rosenblum, LEED AP, evolveEA; Aurora Sharrard, Green Building Alliance; and Zaheen Hussain, Millvale.

Pittsburgh has a history of innovative leadership in green building and is now helping to define the national conversation on sustainability planning. An ecodistrict describes a neighborhood or community whose plan considers both the physical assets of a community as well as the community’s resource flows, such as food, energy, and water. This session will present the emerging trends that are defining ecodistricts and urban planning and how the concept is being implemented nationally and regionally. Learn how to: distinguish between various frameworks for addressing community sustainability and apply them in part or whole; identify the various physical systems and resource flows, i.e., the “hardware” that can be measured in ecodistrict planning; recognize the importance of the “software” of community capacity and how the design process can activate as well as engage a community; and understand the different types of ecodistrict metrics, processes, and outcomes through regional and national examples.

  36. 36. ECODISTRICTS JUSTINMILLER UPTOWN/OAKLAND ECOINNOVATION DISTRICT
  37. 37. WHAT IS AN ECOINNOVATION DISTRICT plan? A community plan focused on equitable growth, economic development, and sustainability. Centered around Uptown/West Oakland, this EcoInnovation District plan will be created WITH and FOR THE COMMUNITY. This includes ensuring that improvements in Uptown/West Oakland reinforce the work already underway in neighboring communities. FIRST THINGS FIRST…
  38. 38. The UPTOWN / WEST OAKLAND area today is: > 204 acres > about 1,000 residents (not including students) > 81 businesses
  39. 39. • This map summarizes proposals from other plans that address uptown. • while uptown is included in these plans, it is not the focus. • this is an opportunity to specifically address the challenges facing uptown and its residents and businesses.
  40. 40. OUR PROCESS:
  41. 41. This is how much of the area is currently vacant.
  42. 42. For years, property was acquired, buildings were demolished and lots used for this. “all of this demolition is destroying the community”
  43. 43. In response, the city created the interim planning overlay district (ipod) which prohibits the demolition of buildings AND CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SURFACE PARKING LOTS in the community.
  44. 44. So what about open space? Is there enough to meet the needs of all residents?
  45. 45. Simply put, no. There are larger parks nearby but very few in the community.
  46. 46. not just open space but landscapes that help to solve regular issues like flooding. Since there are steep hillsides, we should design to better manage stormwater.
  47. 47. HERE ARE the impacts. This is from a storm just TWO months ago.
  48. 48. But despite these challenges, the area has so much going for it, including historic buildings…
  49. 49. …A committed group of active residents organizing for positive and inclusive change…
  50. 50. …AND significant NEIGHBORHOOD assets. Here are just a few.
