On January 26, 2011, Mayor Wild presented Mr. Jeffrey Spoon and Westland Colonial Village with the coveted Mission:Green Eco-Award. The award was presented to Mr. Spoon for installing the first electric vehicle charging station in Westland, also one of the first in the metro Detroit area.  

 Plenty of folks were on hand to help Mayor Wild celebrate this wonderful achievement including Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano, County Commissioner Joan Gebhardt and City Council member Adam Hammons.

 Everyone gathered in the clubhouse of the Westland Colonial Village Apartments located at 8181 N. Wayne Road for the award ceremony and then afterwards were gathered outside to witness the ribbon cutting and view the operation of the charging station on a brand new Chevy Volt electric vehicle brought to the site to see the Charge Point America in action.

Mayor Wild noted that Westland is a City that values being “green” and that installation of this electrical vehicle charging station is a continuation of Mission:Green’s goal of making Westland Michigan’s greenest City.

What a wonderful day we had  for Westland to celebrate Earth Day 2014

Along with a number of residents and Mission: Green members, Mayor William R, Wild held its 2014 Earth Day Celebration Event on Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, 2014 at the Norwayne Community Garden located at the northwest corner of Newaygo and Dorsey in the heart of our Historic Norwayne Community.  The event was sponsored by National Faith Homebuyers who be providing soil, tools and refreshments so that volunteers that include the Hegira Counseling Youth Spring Break group, the Westland Youth Assistance Program and Sts. Simon and Jude Youth Group could clean up winter debris, prepare beds by cleaning them and spreading fresh soil and straw, install rain barrels and plant perennials.

At this wonderful event, Mayor Wild highlighted the youth of our great All-American City and the contributions they make to Westland and the Historic Norwayne Community by presenting the coveted Mission:Green Eco-Award to National Faith Homebuyers, the Hegira Counseling Youth Spring Break Group, and Sts. Simon and Jude Youth Group for their work and dedication toward making Westland a greener place to live, work and play.

A fourth Mission:Green Eco-friendly Award was presented to North Brothers Ford who recently undertook a lighting retrofit project on their site.
