E&LP will be exhibiting at the 102nd Annual New Jersey State League of Municipalities Conference from November 14th-16th at the Atlantic City Convention Center.
Engineering & Land Planning Associates (E&LP) is focusing on our growing portfolio of Green Infrastructure Projects at this year’s League of Municipalities conference. At E&LP, we define Green Infrastructure as sustainable and resilient stormwater best management practices (BMPs) that use or mimic the natural hydrologic cycle. Our integrated team of engineers, landscape architects, and planners deploy these BMPs strategically on the projects we work on to capture, filter, infiltrate, and re-use stormwater. Simultaneously, we look for opportunities to combine these systems with public program and amenities like sports fields, trail systems, play area, dog parks, and streetscapes to name a few. This multiplicity of use that we weave into our design work allows us to maximize value our projects offer to the municipalities we work with. We are able to deliver infrastructure improvements while simultaneously improving public spaces for the community.
E&LP has been active in the Green Infrastructure space from a regulatory standpoint as well. Over the last several years we have partnered with non-profit entities such as NJ Future to support green infrastructure pilot projects, a developer’s guidebook, and drafting and advocating for NJ Stormwater Rule Changes that will incentivize and promote the installation of the best green infrastructure practices. E&LP was also included as a panelist in 2016’s League of Municipalities breakout session entitled “Stormwater Management’s Role in Community Health and Prosperity”. We were able to demonstrate a range of projects throughout the state and in neighboring states that successfully used green infrastructure.
E&LP has successfully integrated green infrastructure into a variety of projects and scales. As an example we were recently selected as the Prime Consultant to lead the design team working on Northwest Resiliency Park in the City of Hoboken. When complete, this will be the largest urban park in the state using green infrastructure practices. We hope to see as many people as possible at the convention to share our work on this project as well the rest of our portfolio.
