McHenry County Green Infrastructure Plan

Posted in: Environmental Protection by Eric Sopp on November 11, 2012 | No Comments

On July 3, 2012, the McHenry County Board adopted the McHenry County Green Infrastructure Plan. This plan embraces a collection of ideas and practices known as ‘green infrastructure’ and, through maps and policy recommendations, presents a vision for countywide implementation. The plan seeks to encourage green infrastructure concepts in land use decisions and new development, and to establish a network of green infrastructure that runs through every jurisdiction in the county. As such, its success is ultimately dependent upon cooperation and collaboration between the county, municipalities, park districts, land conservation agencies, and residents. The Plan received the APA-IL Chapter 2012 Award for best strategic plan. It serves as a model for implementation by other Counties.
