Request for Public Comment - Village Pathways Plan
The Village of Beverly Hills Council is seeking public input on the Beverly Hills Pathways Plan. The intent of the Pathways Plan is to connect Village neighborhoods, parks, and schools via ten-foot wide asphalt pathways along 13 Mile Rd., 14 Mile Rd and Evergreen. The proposed new pathways would be designated for pedestrians and bicycles only and will be maintained and repaired by the Village, including snow removal. A map is provided showing existing Village sidewalks as well as the proposed new sidewalks and pathways. Also shown on the map are sidewalks and pathways in neighboring communities and how the Pathways Plan will connect the Village to various institutions in our neighboring communities.
In order to fund the Pathways Plan, the Village is pursuing grant funding for up to 60% of the cost of the new sidewalks and pathways. Grant funding sources would include but are not limited to the Safe Routes to School Program and the Michigan Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP). Your feedback is vital to the grant funding process to gauge community support for the plan and to provide guidance to ensure the Pathways Plan meets the needs and objectives of our residents.
The Village Council will be taking public comments now until the regularly scheduled Village Council meeting of September 21, 2021. Residents are encouraged to submit their comments to the Village Clerk, Kristin Rutkowski, at email@example.com or by calling the Village Office at 248.646.6404. Comments may also be mailed to Village Hall, 18500 W. Thirteen Mile Road, Beverly Hills, MI 48025. Those wishing to comment in person are welcome to attend the Council meeting on September 21 at the Village Hall at 7:30 PM or participate virtually via Zoom.
