PUBLIC HEARING

FIVE YEAR PLAN FOR ROAD IMPROVEMENTS

AUGUST 24, 2020

6:30-7:00 PM

The public hearing was called to order by Supervisor Fleming at 6:30 PM with all Board members present and twenty two in attendance. Following the pledge to the flag, the list compiled from the surveys was discussed. Many more surveys were submitted just before the meeting and added to the list. The president of the Little Point Sable Association gave a brief history of a past and present survey where their members expressed their desire not to have Buchanan Rd. from Scenic Dr. to Stone Church Rd. paved. The most recent vote was 61% against paving and 39% for paving. A former road commission lawyer discussed some of the safety issues involved with that section of road. The following roads were recommended for placement on the Five Year Plan from the surveys received and the input at the hearing:

2021-Grant Rd. from 28th Ave. to 40th Ave.-crush, shape, lift and repave.

2021-Garfield Rd. from the Ballpark to Lake Michigan Oval beach-repave.
