Priority 4 - Reduce Environmental Impact

The Board seeks to minimize County government’s and the broader community’s impact on the environment, through conservation, energy improvements, and optimization.


The 2014 to 2017 investments should make measurable headway in the following sample community outcomes:

  • Residents in Washtenaw County can easily travel throughout the county, using motorized or non-motorized routes and connections
  • Residents in Washtenaw County can easily access parks, natural areas, and open spaces
  • Washtenaw County government will be carbon neutral
