Residents oppose plan
May 17, 2013 by Administrator
A group of Centreville residents is voicing opposition to a sidewalk plan in their neighborhood.
Nearly two dozen residents attended this week’s Centreville Village Council meeting to voice concern over sidewalks to be built through a Safe Routes To School grant. The $416,000 to help cover the sidewalk-development cost was awarded last September.
Comments ranged from the need for the sidewalks to concern tax dollars will be used for construction. Village officials reiterated the grant will cover all expenses.
The project is now in the hands of officials from the Michigan Department of Transportation. The agency is expected to approve the village’s sidewalk plan early next month, with bids awarded by the end of June.
Construction would likely start in July, with the work done before the start of school in September.
