Monroe Avenue GIGP Project

The Monroe Avenue Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP) is designed to re-integrate natural systems into the Monroe Avenue corridor. Through the use of rain gardens, vegetated swales and the introduction of permeable paving surfaces, the Town of Brighton is retrofitting this vital corridor with cohesive and sustainable green technologies.

The Town of Brighton is purposefully evolving as a sustainable community. Energy conservation, natural resource protection and waste reduction are vitally important to our community. Reintegrating natural systems into the urbanized environment enhances the valuable services that nature provides the human environment, such as filtering stormwater, reducing the heat island effect, creating wildlife habitat and inviting people to walk, bike and enjoy their beautiful neighborhoods. Green infrastructure improvements can provide real ecological, economic, and social benefits as well as improve quality of life for residents of Brighton.

Check back frequently for updates to the Monroe Avenue GIGP on the Project Scope & Schedule tab and track the progress on the Interactive Maps.
