Green Areas Environmental Benefits: Doctors Hospital Parking and Canal

The local canal waterways provide very significant environmental and community benefits along the canal to our residents.

This is especially evidenced along University Blvd in front Doctors Hospital at the corner of Pisano Ave.

The many community benefits of the green areas:

  • Provide wildlife habitat (birds, fish, reptiles, manatees…) diversity
  • Traffic calming and noise mitigation
  • Impeding views of car traffic, valet parking, buses and ambulances
  • Impeding view of Doctors Hospital buildings
  • Mitigate Doctors Hospital lighting
  • Wind and temperature mitigation in storms and hurricanes
  • CO2 capture
  • Favor canal users’ recreational boating and fishing
  • Bolster local property values
