Grey to Green: Creating Cool Cities Wrap Up

The cities where we live are heating up, but the places where we live need to be cool. What makes a cool city? Green infrastructure, sustainable design, art, music, trails, walkability, greenways, complete streets, parks, open space, and really cool people.

Managing urban heat in an increasingly hot and dry climate is necessary to protect public health, infrastructure, the economy and quality of life. Trees and green infrastructure are a priority for urban heat management.

Economic development in the absence of environmental integrity is neither sustainable nor resilient – and it’s just not COOL.
