Phase Community Review

Resilient Washtenaw

Washtenaw County is excited to involve all nine county districts in shaping our Resilient Washtenaw plan. We are working closely with residents to create a collaborative vision for carbon neutrality by 2035. Resilient Washtenaw will be a living document that guides community goals and county operations for years to come.
