Registration now open for the Michigan Green Infrastructure Conference
May 8-9, 2014
Register by March 31 to receive the reduced Early Bird rate!
One can scarcely talk about infrastructure today without also including “green” infrastructure in the discussion. This is true in urban areas where stormwater and combined sewer overflow controls are needed by law. It is also true around the state where planning efforts are seeking to increase green amenities, and where options are being considered for replacing or expanding existing “grey” infrastructure. Michigan’s first statewide Green Infrastructure Conference is coming to Lansing on May 8-9, 2014. It is designed to help everyone associated with local development to overcome the commonly identified barriers to green infrastructure; whether codes and policies, capitol costs and maintenance concerns, modeling and design tools, or plants and soils issues. The conference will deal with it all and more! State and federal policies will also be discussed. Sponsor and exhibitor opportunities are available.
