New storm sewer trace map

In compliance with the Township’s SAW grant, the Public Services Department built this trace map to improve public education about the storm sewer system throughout Delhi Township. The map takes a user specified location and highlights the flow path of storm water downstream of that location. Other data in the map includes drainsheds to show users which drainage basin(s) their storm water travels through on its way to either the Sycamore Creek or the Grand River.

Check it out here.

Delhi gets "gold" for being green - again!

 

Delhi Township was recognized for environmental leadership again at the Michigan Green Communities conference in Muskegon on June 6.

As part of the Michigan Green Communities Challenge, participating local governments were awarded Gold, Silver, Bronze or Member seals of achievement reflecting community leadership in areas such as natural resource conservation, green economic development and energy efficiency.

Delhi Township achieved Gold status for exemplary action in a variety of categories, including its recent township-wide conversion to LED lighting. in the past the township has been awarded Gold status because of its innovative waste treatment system that results in energy savings of more than $70,000 per year for the township. The waste treatment site itself is landscaped in native grasses and uses sheep as a natural alternative to conventional landscape maintenance.

The Challenge is a tool to help local leaders measure their progress in implementing energy, economic development and environmental improvements. It is supported by the Michigan Association of Counties, Michigan Department of Environmental Quality, Michigan Economic Development Corporation Energy Office, Michigan Municipal League and Michigan Townships Association. It uses a rating system to recognize sustainability accomplishments and serves as a guide for community leaders looking to learn from their peers. Participation is free and open to all local governments in Michigan as part of the statewide Michigan Green Communities network that aims to support local sustainability efforts.

The Challenge launched in 2009 and emphasized energy efficiency projects in an effort to help local governments prepare for and make the best use of federal Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant (EECBG) funds. Over the last year, a team of graduate students from the University of Michigan worked with Challenge participants and the staff of partner organizations to update the program. The updated Challenge reflects broader topics, such as green economic development, resource conservation and water quality in addition to maintaining a strong energy component.

Happy in Holt is latest public art sculpture for Delhi Township

Another addition to Delhi Township’s public art offerings was dedicated on Nov. 3 in front of the township community services building.

The metal sculpture was welcomed to the community by CJ Davis, Delhi Township Supervisor, Bob Trezise, President and CEO of the Lansing Economic Area Partnership, Tim Salisbury of PNC Bank and artist Matthew Lincoln.

"Art is about choices, and this community values art, placemaking and overall resident enjoyment," said Davis,. "Therefore, we choose to support public art."

Called "Happy in Holt," the sculpture was made possible by a $10,000 placemaking grant from the Lansing Economic Area Partnership, better known as LEAP. The sculpture is the 19th piece of public art funded by LEAP’s Public Art for Communities grant program, which LEAP President & CEO Bob Trezise describes as "vital to the Lansing region’s growth."

The Public Art for Communities grant program, now in its fifth year, has awarded grants to the cities of Charlotte, DeWitt, East Lansing, Grand Ledge, Lansing, Mason and St. Johns, as well as Delhi, Delta, DeWitt and Meridian townships.

"It encourages civic pride, promotes tourism and helps build a strong economy," Trezise said. "LEAP understands the impact placemaking is having on the Lansing region by creating a global brand where businesses attract and retain world-class talent.

 


 


Leaf collection and disposal is important for the environment

DID YOU KNOW?

Residents should never allow yard waste to be washed down storm drains or dump grass clippings and leaves onto the street or in a roadside ditch.

WHY?

Because rain water that enters storm drains and roadside ditches eventually flows to a body of water without treatment, therefore leaves and grass clippings will eventually go with it.

The problem is nutrients in yard waste can lead to harmful algae growth in those bodies of water, including a local creek, pond or lake. When it reaches the water, it decomposes and uses up the oxygen, which kills fish. This is the same water we use for fishing, swimming, boating and recreation. Also, leaves that are left in the street can block drains and cause flooding.

New sculpture flew into Holt Farmers Market

Butterflies came to the Holt Farmers Market this fall. No, Holt is not a stopover on the insects’ migration south. Instead, the Holt Farmers Market is the permanent home of butterflies sculpted from metal and glass.

This new sculpture is the creation of renowned artist Craig Mitchell Smith. Do we mean the Craig Mitchell Smith, who has displayed his work at Disney’s Epcot Center and all over the United States? Are we talking about the Lansing-based artist who has appeared on HGTV and who has been invited to speak at the White House? Yes, the one and only!

The 15-foot tall sculpture consists of stainless steel and glass butterflies that appear to be flying toward the market building on Cedar Street. Inside the market, large all-glass butterflies are suspended overhead.

The work was totally funded by a $10,000 grant from LEAP’s Public Arts for Communities program. An ad hoc committee consisting of elected officials and representatives of the Delhi Township DDA, the Holt Farmers Market, and the Holt Community Arts Council selected Mr. Smith’s proposal.

Stop by the Farmers Market to shop on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and to check out this new beautiful artwork.
