Urban Forestry as a Means of Fostering Economic Development and Environmental Health in the Coal Regions of Kentucky and Virginia

  1. 1. Urban Forestry as a Means of Fostering Economic Development and Environmental and Personal Health in the Coal Regions of Kentucky and Virginia Community Design Assistance Center Virginia Tech 11/7/13
  2. 2. CDAC- Introduction ▪ Outreach center in Virginia Tech’s College of Architecture and Urban studies ▪ Employs students to work with communities, neighborhood groups, and non-profit organizations to improve the natural and built environments through conceptual design and planning ▪ Healthy Living by Design: creating designs that take into consideration factors to help create healthy environments. This includes aspects such as the physical, psychological, and intellectual well-being of users as well as the health of the environment
  3. 3. CDAC- Introduction Landscape Architecture Architecture Opportunities and Constraints Constraints Railroads Franklin's Crossing Contours 10ft ! Private Property Opportunities ! ! Point of Interest Railroad Crossings UtilityLine Streams Trails Area Of Interest Water Bodies ¯ Tidewater Trail ROW Civi lWar Battlefields 0 0.05 0.1 0.2 0.3 0.4 Miles PublicLand ! Vacant Lots ! ! Interior Design Culvert Meade's Monument ! Prospect Hill Planning
  4. 4. CDAC- Process ▪ CDAC involves community members in the design process ▪ Provides mechanism for partnering with and engaging underserved communities and results in community “buy in” to implement plans and strategies Community Participation Design Implementation ▪ Conceptual designs often help communities be better prepared for grant applications and help leverage additional funding
  5. 5. Southern Foresters Grant Mission: To expand community planning/ participation in developing conceptual plans and long-term strategies to conserve, enhance, connect, and protect community natural resources (community forests, open space, watersheds, regional trail networks, riparian corridors) and encourage forest based recreation and eco-tourism
  6. 6. Southern Foresters Grant Project Area Grant Focused on the Coal Mining Regions of Kentucky and Virginia ▪ Appalachia has long struggled with poverty ▪ Reasons for coal mining’s bleak future: declining reserves, higher production costs, and competition from other coal basins and natural gas ▪ Majority of counties are either economically distressed or are at-risk counties with distressed areas ▪ Strong need to diversify the region’s economy Project Area ▪ Lack of professional staff who specialize in these types of projects
  7. 7. Urban Forestry is relevant in small cities & towns as well as large ▪ Provides a starting point for program development ▪ Educates public about urban forestry, landscape design, and city planning ▪ Offers students and citizens the opportunity to interact with urban foresters and learn about state forestry programs Southern Foresters Grant
  8. 8.
