Exciting news! Delhi Township is among just 22 municipalities in the state to receive gold certification as part of the Michigan Green Communities (MGC) Challenge. It’s an effort that showcases environmental leadership for our commitment to sustainability, including energy efficiency, climate adaptation and recycling. Overall, 44 local governments received a seal of achievement, 10 communities received bronze certification and 12 received silver.
“Delhi Township is deeply committed to sustainable efforts that help our community in a variety of ways – both now and into the future,” said Tracy Miller, Delhi Township Manager. “Our decision to implement energy efficiency renovations at our public facilities, for example, helps keep down emissions and allows us to save taxpayer dollars on labor costs. Being a walkable township is important to us and we’re creating even more trail options for outdoor activities.”
The Michigan Green Communities program is free and open to all local governments in the state. It’s a sustainability networking, benchmarking, and technical assistance program that guides and supports communities in adapting to a changing climate, protecting infrastructure, improving the quality of life for residents, and creating a more environmentally and economically sustainable future for Michigan.
