D.4.1 Green Space Inventory

Action

Conduct and document your district’s green space inventory.

Why

All good plans for revitalization start with taking stock of the assets your district has. This enables you to create a strategic plan that takes advantage of the assets you have, address core issues, share information more easily with stakeholders, and helps you market your district.

How

Watch the “How to Collect, Maintain, and Leverage Your Main Street Inventories” webinar and review the Main Street Inventory Quick Reference for guidance on how to conduct this inventory.
