Environmental park district plan enhances land, business
Thursday, Sept. 2, 2010
WSU graduate students will help Auburn, Wash., create a plan for sustainable development and green businesses with $95,000 in funding from the city.
Led by Michael Wolcott, professor of civil and environmetal engineering, the project will create a detailed engineering, architectural and biological plan for the 130 acre zoned Auburn Environmental Park District (AEPD).
The goal of the development is to create the environment necessary to economically attract green businesses to locate in the AEPD, enhancing the value of the property while substantially growing high value green jobs in the district.
Working with Wolcott will be about 20 graduate students, as well as Deborah Ascher-Barnstone, associate professor, and Todd Beyreuther, Karl Olsen and Cara Poor, all clinical assistant professors.
