SEPTEMBER 30 – Establishing Green and Sustainable Parking Lots 
5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
Arborcrest - Whitpain Township

MCPC is offering an exciting workshop that will focus on the various aspects of green parking lots and will highlight great examples of green and sustainable parking lots throughout the region. Come learn how effective landscaping, smart layout and design, and innovative pavement surfaces can transform parking lots into an attractive amenity that can reduce stormwater runoff and maintain moderate temperatures. Participants will be among the first to view MCPC’s new guidebook to green and sustainable parking lots and will have an opportunity to take a brief tour of the green elements of the Arborcrest’s parking lot. Arborcrest was the recipient of a 2013 Montgomery Award. This event corresponds to the Sustainable Places theme contained in Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, Montgomery County's new, nationally awarded comprehensive plan. Click here for more information and online registration.
