Greener Belltown = Bluer Sound
A Neighborhood Green Stormwater Management Project
Greener Belltown=Bluer Sound (GBBS) was conceived as a community engagement effort to develop a visionary plan for managing 50% of Belltown’s stormwater runoff and serve as a model that could be replicated in other areas of the Seattle 2030 District. In addition, the goal was to build the case for more investment in Green Stormwater Infrastructure (GSI) and to identify practical GSI solutions at the neighborhood scale that could also mesh with local priorities.
