Platt Road Greenway II
|On April 13, 2016 the Pittsfield Charter Township Board of Trustees approved Resolution #16-21 to apply for grant funding for the Platt Road Greenway Project Phase II (PRG II). At the time, the Township was awarded a grant for Platt-Textile Greenway instead. On October 9, 2019 the Board approved Resolution #19-50 to apply for grant funding for the project a second time. In March 2020, the Township was awarded $1,072,747.00 in grant funding for completion of the second phase of the Platt Road Greenway.|
The PRG II project will provide, for the first time, non-motorized access from the southern portion of the Township to a northern boundary of Pittsfield Township, connecting into the City of Ann Arbor's network to the north, and the potential to connect to the County's Border To Border (B2B) network to the south and east. PRG II will connect into the existing Platt Road greenway and provide for seamless connection from wall Park (on the south) to Lillie Park) on the north), by away of a ten (10) foot wide paved pathway that also includes two pedestrian crossings: one at the Township Administration Building and another at Wall Park.
