Facilities Master Plan

In August 2013 CGL, in association with MBI-K2M Architechs, prepared a 25-year master space and facilities plan for the various government departments and offices located in facilities throughout Monroe County. Please view the Space Planning/Facilities Assessment Report.

Integrated Pest Management (IPM)

An Integrated Pest Management Plan (IPM) is a decision-making process following a set of detailed procedures describing how particular pest problems will be avoided or managed. Such pest management tactics may involve the activities of multiple Monroe County Staff and contractors responsible for pest management. How a park or facility is used has great bearing on the types of pest problems which may occur. IPM maintains a high standard of pest control while reducing reliance on pesticides.  Whenever possible, prevention of pests will be the primary strategy to hinder their establishment and reduce the need for pesticide use.
