Program Areas

The 60+ projects, partnerships, and initiatives in our 2030 Roadmap generally fit into 4 main program areas:  Climate Action and Adaptation, Community Resilience, Greening Lloyd, and Inclusive Prosperity.
Greening Lloyd
Blooming Communities Among Pavement

Placemaking is the most visible aspect of our EcoDistrict’s collective impact work. We have a vision of a neighborhood where bees find nectar-rich plants on every block, flowers brighten the hard concrete spaces, pollinator populations are bolstered, and rainfall goes to the roots of plants instead of into a storm drain. To achieve this, we engage residents, employees, and visitors in projects that beautify and enhance the urban habitat.

Our Pollinator Placemaking projects educate or bring living plants into urban spaces and make sure that those plants support the animals that call this place home. Pollinator spaces in parking strips, bike corridors, and corporate-owned spaces in our EcoDistrict are critical to our ecosystem, food supply, and health. Projects also help counteract the heat island effect and remove pollutants from the air.

Community Resilience
Cultivating Community through Connection, Protection, and Reflection

Resilience is a cornerstone of what an EcoDistrict tries to create: the capacity of neighborhoods to function so that all people are able to withstand the shocks and stresses they encounter. Community building—people getting to know each other and finding comfort and familiarity with their neighbors—is central to our approach to building resiliency.

Our Residential Resilience projects focus on identifying ways to build community bonds among Lloyd residents, employees, and visitors. We address resilience with a broad lens that prepares for social, economic, and environmental shocks and we use social justice, placemaking, emergency preparedness, and climate to reach a wide array of people.

Climate Action & Adaptation
Electrifying Lloyd through Education and Partnerships

Since the launch of Lloyd EcoDistrict, the Lloyd community has set the standard for resource conservation and efficiency (energy, water, and materials management), minimizing the neighborhood’s impact on the environment while optimizing the use of existing public infrastructure investments, and reducing private develop costs and utility-related expenses for local businesses and residents.

The urgency of the global climate crisis causes us to double down on our goals and plans to reduce carbon emissions, with actions outlined in our Energy and Waste Reduction Action Plans.

Inclusive Prosperity
Breathing Life Into Tomorrow

While our Path to Decarbonization projects works to limit the worst effects of climate change, it is undeniable that our local natural and built environments are already impacted by climate change. Increased average temperature, days with extreme high and low temperatures, excessive fluctuations in precipitation, and wildfire smoke are going to become more common in the decades ahead.

Our Climate Adaption works to respond to the immediate climate hazards – such as being prepared for poor air quality days – and creating long-term neighborhood mitigation strategies to manage the effects of a changing climate locally.
