Sustainability - Green Infrastructure Vision

A key component of creating success in Southeast Michigan is developing a Regional Green Infrastructure Vision to identify the green infrastructure components we have throughout the region and envision a future where greening is a critical element. There are many areas in Michigan and throughout the United States that have a vision for green infrastructure, including some Southeast Michigan communities. However, we currently lack a holistic, coordinated effort bringing together all the unique elements of green infrastructure, including parks, wildlife habitat, hiking/biking trails, water trails, tree canopy, agricultural lands, conservation property, vacant property, and many others.
