Urban Forestry

Draft WAterIn 2011, the Piedmont Triad Regional Council and the Piedmont Authority for Regional Transportation received a $1.6 million grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development. With key support from agencies such as the NCFS, they produced Piedmont Together, a sustainable communities plan for the twelve-county Triad region.

In partnership with the North Carolina Forest Service, the Piedmont Triad Regional Council produced four booklets addressing clean water, energy, climate and  healthy communities around the state based on information gathered during the Piedmont Together planning process.

Information gathered for the production of these booklets was adapted to meet statewide needs.  These documents can also be found below.
