[ARCHIVED] Pittsfield Township Receives Sustainable Community Leader Award by SEMCOG

SEMCOG Sustainability Award

The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) has selected Pittsfield Township to receive the Sustainable Community Leader Award at the gold level.

Pittsfield is the first community in Washtenaw County and the 14th in Southeast Michigan to receive this award and distinction. This award recognizes SEMCOG member communities that are incorporating sustainable activities into their practices.

For local governments, sustainability is about achieving economic prosperity while protecting the environment and providing a high quality of life for residents. SEMCOG-supported initiatives help local governments achieve and maintain sustainability along economic, fiscal, environmental, placemaking, and accessibility parameters.

“This award highlights the efforts of the past six years at Pittsfield Township to promote multimodal transportation, infill and dense nodal development patterns, fiscal health, and preservation of open/green spaces. This recognition is not only gratifying but also provides further fuel to continue on our path to define a sustainable Premier Pittsfield,” noted Supervisor Mandy Grewal.

“SEMCOG commends Pittsfield Township’s sustainability efforts and acknowledges this great work through our Sustainable Community Leader Award,” noted SEMCOG Executive Director, Kathleen Lomako. “This recognition further enables Pittsfield Township to inform residents and business owners about these important sustainable initiatives being implemented throughout the community. We are proud that Pittsfield Township is a member of SEMCOG.”
