The City of Defiance is working with the Council of the Great Lakes Region (CGLR) and Bowling Green State University (BGSU), in a collaborative approach to problem-solving for the region. The groups have teamed together to form “Great Lakes Smart and Sustainable Cities” — with a focus on using innovation and shared resources to provide digital solutions for improving water quality.

The goal of the combined effort is to:

  • Enhance digital infrastructure in rural NW Ohio
  • Provide 21st-Century solutions for the rural economy
  • Secure a prosperous future for Agriculture in the region
  • Protect our Drinking Water

The City’s efforts are part of the on-going Land to Lake Initiative. For more information, see the documents below.
