Mission Statement

Getting the most good out of green infrastructure

Description

Fresh Coast Communities, a 501(c)3 affiliate of Fresh Coast Capital, helps cities maximize the benefits of green infrastructure for their communities through public education, planning and workforce development.

Community Education and Demonstration Projects: We provide marketing, workshops, tours, and demonstration projects intended to educate and empower community members to determine whether green infrastructure is right for them and to develop a vision for its impact.

Green Infrastructure Planning: We lead green infrastructure feasibility studies and planning processes with an emphasis on community engagement and plans that achieve the highest levels of social, economic, and environmental impact.

Co-Benefits Programming and Partnerships: We optimize green infrastructure projects to realize the richest "co-benefits" for the community, which can include workforce development, improved health outcomes, stabilizing neighborhood property values, increasing social interaction among community members, reducing crime, and more.

Workforce Development Programming: One of the strongest tangible benefits that green infrastructure programs can bring to a community is developing a new green jobs career ladder. We seek to develop green infrastructure workforce development programs in the cities where Fresh Coast Capital works.
