Holyoke, once a thriving industrial center, is in a period of redevelopment. Like many older cities the city faces the issues of Combined Sewer Overflows and stormwater runoff polluting nearby water systems. This Guidebook proposes that Green Streets can help address these problems while creating more vibrant, livable communities. This Guidebook is intended to introduce city planners and policy makers to Green Streets, advocate for Green Streets implementation in Holyoke, and serve as a preliminary set of design guidelines to transform Holyoke’s streets into more ecologically, socially, and economically positive spaces.
