The phrase “Go green” has new meaning in Meridian Township. Communities across the country, including Meridian, are becoming eco friendly and helping the environment. As a result, Meridian Township is installing LED streetlights in downtown Okemos. In Meridian, community members have taken special interest in revitalizing the area and making it the center of commerce, as it once was. “Two years ago, we went through a master plan study…as a result of that, we’ve been on this quest to improve public spaces, really creating a sense of place,” said Paul Brake, assistant township manager.
