Saugatuck/Douglas is part of the Kalamazoo River Greenway initiative. This initiative is focused around the green space along the Kalamazoo River corridor encompassed within Allegan County, which ranges from the width of the river to two miles on either side.
In the Saugatuck area, we are seeking to preserve corridors of greenspace for the purposes of habitat and recreational purposes. This will allow us to provide greater access for area residents to navigate between existing natural areas for generations to come, but also promote the addition of new natural areas and expansion of existing natural areas.
Greenways are corridors of protected green space managed for the benefit of conservation, economic vitality, and recreation. Greenways typically follow natural features like rivers linking people and habitat across a geographic region.
