I think the costs associated with greening the urban environment will be

Augmented reality has the potential to make the dullest city appear as an
oasis or whatever else the consumer wants to see

Wearables have the added benefit that the consumer will pay you to get
them, while the public-good works require creative accounting of tax money.

several levels of "nice" for your city.  I could see residents getting a
subscription discount for volume purchasing while the visitors are taken
advantage of -- much like the parking situation in many densely-populated
