The City’s Green Development Guide provides an explanation of five key green development topics; highlights green development practices applicable to development conditions within Coquitlam; can be used to facilitate discussions regarding sustainable development; and is a potential resource for development projects:
Green Building (including renewable energy)
Green Infrastructure (stormwater management and district energy)
Natural Infrastructure (open space networks, naturescaping)
Coverage of each topic includes background material on the basic elements, benefits, and challenges, as well as a series of case studies. There is a "Further Resources" section at the end of the guide.
