Bio-retention Island at Kingsdale Shopping Center

Many examples of green infrastructure are currently functioning in Franklin County.  This Google Earth file,  Green Infrastructure Tour, is a compilation of sites that can be viewed on your smart phone or computer, so you can see for yourself the potential benefits and functions of low impact development and green best management practices.

If you have an iPhone or iPad, download the free Google Earth app.  Then when you click on the above link and open the kml file, the Google Earth map will open.  Expand it until central Ohio is visible and you will see the icons for the green infrastructure practices.  Some are not yet populated with photos of the practices, but we’re working on it!

The locations of known practices have been identified and a short description of the practice is given.  This is an on-going project that will be updated periodically to provide you with the most recent information and innovations occurring in central Ohio.
