Northville Pyschiatric Hospital Trail?

Postby specialized08 » March 7th, 2011, 6:52 am

I was just reading the layout for the meeting this month and saw there was the potential to start a trail on that property later this month. Does this hold any water? I grew up in the subdivision South of the grounds there and think it would be a great idea, not to mention I'm still about a mile away and I would probably ride this every day if I could.

50 views and no input? I'm guessing that was a pipe dream rumor then. I'm still new to hearing about the IMBA rumors also, but I wonder if this might help/hurt the chances of that trail. It really is a great piece of property and would make a nice FAST single track with random swamps for bridge potential, etc.

The Northville property has been in the news recently (see other thread). Two weeks ago, the Northville council voted to hire an engineering firm to create a master plan for the site, a process which will entail creating a citizen advisory board and public input. And will take time. I haven't heard anything, but it seems unlikely that significant work would be authorized without that plan in place.

From my perspective, the decision to become an IMBA chapter or not will have absolutely no effect on Metro South's support of this trail system. Most of the Metro South board has walked the land and invested time in helping to clear up the remains of the logging activity that occurred out there. We would like to see a multi-use trail system developed on that site, and will work towards achieving that goal.

There is a Metro South chapter meeting next Monday. That would be a great opportunity to discuss this further and coordinate efforts.

I read it on one of the past agendas, which I seemingly cannot find at the moment. It may be pretty dated now and it is possible I opened up a can of worms on this one :|

Agreed. I'm still looking for a new set of wheels since I sold mine during the off season :( It's coming quicker than I thought, or so it seems
