With Mayor Sam Adams’ recent announcement that he hopes to find $20 million for bike projects in Portland’s Green Streets program, you might be wondering what exactly a green street is. Today I came across a video (watch it below) on the City’s website that gives a nice overview.

The video is by Net Green News and it features the City’s Sustainable Stormwater Division Manager Linda Dobson. In the video, Dobson says, “The green and the vegetation can not only manage the stormwater and clean it up, but it also makes for nicer streetscapes and it can enhance the bicycle and pedestrian environment.”
