City of Irving's Grow Zone Program
Tuesday, March 21, 2023
The City of Irving has recently created a Grow Zone Program. This program is managed by the Municipal Drainage Utility Division (MDU) within the Capital Improvement Program in collaboration with the Parks Department. The program is rooted in improving biodiversity within urban habitats, and in using Nature Based Solutions to help improve the quality of our environment. Benefits of instituting Grow Zones are vast, and range from improving water, air, and habitat quality, but also in reducing risks of floods and damage caused by erosion. We will be taking a deep dive into all the city owned land that doesn’t get mowed, how these spaces differ from one another, and why they are important.
