Who we are

 

Green Macomb_4.png

The Green Macomb initiative was created by the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development to support green infrastructure efforts that strengthen the economic vitality, quality of life, and environmental well-being of the region.

Green infrastructure is a way of improving water quality and reducing flooding while also providing additional community benefits including recreation, public health, quality of life, increased property values, improved air quality, and reduced infrastructure costs.

Green infrastructure includes interconnected networks of open spaces, parks, wetlands, and natural areas as well as features intentionally designed to mimic these natural systems, such as rain gardens, bioswales, urban parks, and urban trees.

Through diverse partnerships, Green Macomb is working with local municipalities, businesses, private residents, and nonprofit organizations in order to enhance our region’s land and water resources.
