The Monroe Avenue Green Innovation Grant Program (GIGP) is designed to re-integrate natural systems into the Monroe Avenue corridor from 12 Corners to the Westfall Road intersection. 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.
