First Greenprint Summit brings community, implementers together

The first bi-annual Greenprint Summit will occur next month, bringing the community together for education on the plan and how it is improving the quality of life in the Mid-South.

The Summit will feature many more than 30 local organizations whose current projects are "changing how we live," supporting the Greenprint’s objectives to accelerate the Mid-South’s transition into a more livable, sustainable and connected region.  The event will be held at the Germantown Great Hall in the afternoon on November 16 and is free and open to the public.

Exhibitors will showcase new and exciting initiatives and projects such as the West Memphis EcoPark, the Harahan Bridge Project, the Explore Bike Share program, and the Wolf River Greenway, among others. 

A presentation from Greenprint Coordinator John Michels on the future of the Greenprint will be part of the afternoon, as well as a Mayor’s Panel, which includes Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell Jr., Germantown Mayor Mike Palazzolo, Memphis Mayor A C Wharton, Jr. and Arlington Mayor Mike Wissman, and others. The day will close with a Greenways Panel, featuring the Mid-South’s leading Greenway Groups and Conservancies.
