Planning and Economic Development

North Branch Greenway and Floodplain Plan for public comment



In 2019, Macomb County Planning and Economic Development was awarded a multi-jurisdictional planning grant from Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) to develop a vision for a greenway along the north branch of the Clinton River. A steering committee was formed to guide the project and partners in development of the vision and it included The Clinton River Watershed Council, Six Rivers Land Conservancy, SEMCOG, Huron Clinton Metropark Authority, Macomb County, Macomb Township, Clinton Township, Ray Township and Lenox Township.

This greenway plan also identifies potential trail routes and conservation strategies along the publicly- and privately-owned properties. The proposed North Branch Greenway project works to not only protect and conserve the riparian corridor, but also envisions a network of trails that would connect the Freedom Trail in the south to the Macomb Orchard Trail in the north.
