On the Boards: City of Atlanta Urban Ecological Framework Project

Led by Commissioner Tim Keane, the City of Atlanta Department of Planning and Community Development is embarking on a unique city-wide planning effort. A key component of the project includes the Urban Ecological Framework (UEF) – the purpose of which is to establish a natural context for Atlanta’s growth and development and to determine what aspects of nature in Atlanta should be preserved, restored, and accentuated by the public realm.

RVi was part of the team selected to implement the project and will be supporting the prime contractor, Biohabitats, in this endeavor. Biohabitats has more than 30 years of experience leading conservation teams on more than 1,000 projects across the country. They are passionate about restoring ecosystems and directing healthy land development, and they have previously teamed with RVi on projects like the Westside Quarry Park and Preserve. Our firm is excited for the opportunity to support the City of Atlanta’s efforts to develop a long-term plan for the sustainable growth of the city.

RVi Celebrates It's My Park Day with Austin Natural Science Center Project

Participating in the Austin Parks Foundation’s It’s My Park Day is a tradition at RVi, and this year’s fall event was no exception. RViers rolled up their sleeves for a very fun project at the Austin Natural Science Center, where we helped the center’s staff install landscaping around the central pond area. The RVi team added topsoil, planted native plants, and mulched around the new areas, making an immediate visible improvement to the space. The new plantings are also designed to control erosion and encourage safe traffic patterns through the area as people interact with the streambed below. Of course no volunteer event is complete without a celebration, so the group enjoyed brunch afterwards at Galaxy Café, one of several restaurants offering special deals to It’s My Park Day volunteers. Special thanks to Alan Mackey, Project Manager for organizing RVi’s efforts this year.
