GSI Grant, Hot Weather, Noise

GSI Grant, Hot Weather, Noise

by Ali Bickford, Mitman NA President

Hello Mitman!

Mitman has been approved for GSI Grant.

Community Design Event for June 13th at 530. Location to be determined.

Friday, some of the Mitman Board members met with Tucson Clean and Beautiful to discuss adding Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) to the Tucson City Water Pump site at 4th and Baker (gravel lot). The project’s goal is to capture stormwater runoff and divert it to water harvesting areas. That will cool neighborhoods, improve air quality, encourage pollinators, and recharge the aquifers.  TCB- Has an amazing vision that seems like it could be pulled from the Desert Museum or Tucson Botanical Garden. At the design meeting we will discuss color palettes, plant sizes that will keep the space visually open and drain patterns for the space.
