Recommended Planting Guide for Municipalities
On January 6th, 2015 the Township Board approved an amendment to the Landscaping Ordinance Section 7.5.6., this ordinance promotes the use of native plant materials, and discourages the use of invasive plant materials. Acme Township will use the “Recommended Planting Guidelines for Municipalities” as published by the Northwest Michigan Invasive Species Network, as periodically revised, to determine what constitutes a native species from an invasive species.
