Livingston County Planning Department releases High-Quality Natural Areas Assessment
The 2022 Livingston County High-Quality Natural Areas Assessment provides an extensive update to the County Planning Department’s initial 2004 assessment. Computing technology, data availability, and mapping products and processes have improved tremendously since 2004, which has allowed the County to do much more in depth analysis then was previously available.
This report documents the natural feature characteristics of the County, identifies the County’s High-Quality Natural Areas, compares and contrasts this data with the 2004 assessment, and much more. As a result of this assessment, a new GIS mapping application for high-quality natural areas will be developed and added to the Livingston County GIS Map Gallery for Livingston County municipalities to utilize when reviewing zoning amendments.
This beneficial new Potential Conservation Areas Assessment can be found on the Livingston County Planning Department website at: https://www.livgov.com/plan/Pages/County-Plans.aspx

Radon Test Kits available to residents - courtesy of the Livingston County Health Department
Genoa Township is giving out free radon testing kits this month, which is designated as National Radon Action Month. The testing kit and instructions are available at the Clerk's Department.
The naturally-occurring, tasteless, odorless and colorless gas comes from the natural, radioactive breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water and gets into the air. It enters buildings through openings in foundation floors or walls such as sump openings, crawlspaces, floor or wall joints and cracks.
In Livingston County, approximately 40% of homes have elevated radon levels, according to information on the county's website from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality.
For more information on this program and on radon in general, please visit the Livingston County Health Department Radon page.
