Public hearing Sept. 17 on grant application for Silver Lake Road Connector Trail

The Southern Lakes Regional Metropolitan Parks and Recreation Commission (SLPR) is developing a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Trust Fund grant application for the development of the Silver Lake Road Connector Trail. The pathway will be constructed along the south side of Silver Lake Road through the communities of Linden, Fenton and Fenton Township and connects Triangle Park in the city of Linden with Silver Lake Park in the city of Fenton. The proposed pathway benefits the southern lakes area communities by providing alternate transportation, recreational opportunities, and regional connectivity with an overall goal to develop non-motorized connectivity within these southern Genesee County communities and beyond. SLPR will hold an informational public hearing Thursday, Sept. 17 at 6 p.m. to explain the proposed project and grant application and seek input from the community. Due to COVID restrictions, the public hearing will be held using the Zoom meeting platform. If you have any questions, please contact SLPR Executive Director Ed Koledo at (810) 714-2011 or email him at ekoledo@slpr.net.
