Green Rental Housing

In spring 2012, the City of Ann Arbor received a grant to increase energy efficiency in rental housing units within Washtenaw County as part of the HUD Sustainable Communities Challenge Grant. ​This project will develop a strategy that educates the community, uses voluntary, market-based, or policy approaches to spur efficiency investments in the rental housing market, and provides incentives to property owners to increase energy efficiency in their units.​

Community Climate Partnership

In 2013, The Ecology Center, the Huron River Watershed Council, the City of Ann Arbor, along with a growing list of other partners launched the Community Climate Partnership (CCP) to implement Ann Arbor's Climate Action Plan

Sustainability Framework​

On February 19, 2013, Ann Arbor City Council adopted the sustainability framework as an element of the City Master Plan. The City is currently developing a sustainability action plan​​ (pdf)​ to connect targets and actions to each sustainability framework goal. This action plan will help track and monitor progress on each of the sustainability goal.​
