City Seeks Residents Input on Urban Greening

The City of Pico Rivera is inviting residents to take part in an 11-question survey as part of the City’s Urban Greening Plan.

The plan will help in the development of a safe and connected bicycle and pedestrian network, identify new green spaces, and create a unifying street tree canopy plan for more walkable and bikeable neighborhoods.

There are numerous environmental and community benefits of Urban Greening including the reduction of flooding and sewer overflow by absorbing large amounts of storm water. This provides wildlife habitat, helping to maintain air quality, and providing green space for neighborhood socializing and community building. Urban Greening can also help to create “Green Streets” that enable safe and attractive access throughout the city by foot, transit, bicycle and car.

This survey will help identify residents’ thoughts on the existing street trees in Pico Rivera.

Residents will also have the opportunity to follow the project on Twitter @GreenPicoRivera, and on Facebook #GreenPicoRivera.
