The Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Sustainability Planning Process is Complete

The regional Greenprint includes parks, greenways, bike trails and walking paths, byways, blueways, conservation lands, natural areas, wildlife management areas, open space areas, community gardens, stormwater management areas, and other similar spaces.  The scope of this plan is defined geographically by the boundaries of the Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) and West Memphis MPO, including jurisdictions in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas.

The development of a Regional Greenprint & Sustainability Plan will address the need for initiating long-term comprehensive land use planning in the Greater Memphis Area.


Our Vision

A region of connected communities that are united in creating a high quality of life; a region where the physical and social environments are

After over two years of outstanding work by Consortium partners and members of the public, it is with pleasure that we present GREENPRINT 2015/2040, the final Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Sustainability Plan.
