County to host open house on green infrastructure plan

WOODSTOCK – The McHenry County Department of Planning and Development invites residents to learn about the Draft McHenry County Green Infrastructure Plan and provide the county with feedback May 31.

This event will be from 4 to 7 p.m. at the McHenry County Administration Building, 667 Ware Road in Woodstock.

Because of its open-house format, attendees may arrive at any time to learn about the plan, green infrastructure concepts, and how these concepts promote the county’s goals of natural resource protection and intergovernmental cooperation.

Presentations will be given periodically and exhibits and copies of the plan will be on display.  County staff also will be available to answer questions and receive comments.

The Department of Planning and Development has been working on a green infrastructure plan since late 2010.

“Green infrastructure” is a term that represents the latest strategies and technologies that support the natural environment, wildlife diversity and clean water. 

These efforts stem directly from recommendations and policies of the McHenry County 2030 Comprehensive Plan.

For information, contact Darrell Moore in the Department of Planning and Development at 815-334-4549 or dnmoore@co.mchenry.il.us.
