The Department of Natural Resources will conduct a public meeting from 7 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, May 11, concerning the proposed Regional Trail Connector within Highland State Recreation Area in White Lake Township. The meeting will take place at the White Lake Township Hall, located at 7525 Highland Rd. in White Lake.
The purpose of the meeting is to present information regarding the trail and to seek public comment. The DNR and its design consultants, Nowak & Fraus Engineers, will share conceptual drawings to encourage discussion and feedback on the proposed regional trail development. A process for sharing future development plans will also be discussed.
This proposed section of trail will be the first step in what the DNR hopes will eventually be a regional trail that connects Highland State Recreation Area with Pontiac Lake State Recreation Area to the northeast, and Proud Lake State Recreation Area to the south. The goal of the initial design is to create a new trail that begins at Highland's main entrance that will connect to the existing trail system. This multi-purpose trail will accommodate hiking, biking and equestrians.
Local staff will be available to answer questions and receive comments from attendees.
Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for the meeting should contact William Althoff at 248-889-3750, a minimum of five business days before this meeting. Requests made less than five business days before the meeting may not be accommodated.
