Harford County residents have the opportunity to review and comment on the county's first Green Infrastructure Plan now available online.

The plan is for an interconnected network of forests, wetlands and waterways to support natural ecosystems, preserve water resources, improve storm water management, and promote healthier communities, Harford County Director of Government & Community Relations Cindy Mumby said in a statement. 

The green plan is part of a larger HarfordNEXT countywide master plan developed by the county's Department of Planning and Zoning. The plan was partially financed with support of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and other partners, the county's statement said.

At a previous open house to raise awareness about the Green Infrastructure Plan, public input was incorporated into the draft, with community members and stakeholders voicing their opinions.

Comments on the draft plan are welcome through Friday, Dec. 28, with the public response helping shape the final draft. The plan can be reviewed and commented upon on the Harford County government's website.
