The webinar will be led by Sean P. Vargas, P.E., ENV SP, LEED AP Director of Sustainability for Psomas, the project designer. The session will focus on both the technical and the community/social challenges faced in creating an urban park out of what had been a blighted industrial zone – complete with unexpected side effects.
