Who we are
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.
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.
