Mid-South Regional Greenprint Plan

Connecting Communities For Our Future
Greenprint logo

GREENPRINT 2015/2040 is the final plan of the Mid-South Regional Greenprint and Sustainability Plan initiative, a process funded by a $2,619,999 Sustainable Communities Regional Planning Grant from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) awarded to Shelby County Government. The 25-year plan is designed to enhance regional sustainability by establishing a unified vision for a region-wide network of green space areas, or Greenprint, which serves to address long-term housing and land use, resource conservation, environmental protection, accessibility, community health and wellness, transportation alternatives, economic development, neighborhood engagement, and social equity in the Greater Memphis Area.

The Greenprint study area included the Memphis and West Memphis Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs), covering four counties and 18 municipalities located in the states of Tennessee, Arkansas, and Mississippi. The study area boundaries include Shelby County, TN, and the cities of Arlington, Bartlett, Collierville, Germantown, Lakeland, Memphis, and Millington; northern DeSoto County, MS, including the cities of Hernando, Horn Lake, Olive Branch, Southaven, and Walls; eastern Crittenden County, AR, including the cities of West Memphis, Marion and Sunset; and western Fayette County, TN, including the cities of Piperton, Gallaway, and Braden.

The planning process for the Greenprint began with a visioning phase, laying the foundation for the regional plan. In addition to a detailed study of green space opportunities, existing plans, and regional sustainability indicators, the vision was supported by several, smaller plans and studies.

These studies include the Bus Transit to Workplace Study, Health Impact Assessment, Fair Housing and Equity Assessment, and 20 subplanning demonstration projects created by Consortium stakeholders. Each of these documents can be found in the Resource Library below.
