Public meeting Thursday to discuss 10 Mile Road expansion

Public meeting Thursday to discuss 10 Mile Road expansion

The Kent County Road Commission will hold a public meeting on Thursday, March 31st on the Draft Environmental Statement for the project to widen 10 Mile Road.

The project would widen the roadway to 5 lanes between Wolven Avenue and Childsdale Avenue.

The expansion is meant to deal with the increased traffic volume and congestion created by population growth and development in Algoma Township, Courtland Township and the City of Rockford.

The public hearing will take place at Resurrection Life Church at 3233 10 Mile Road from 5pm to 7pm Thursday evening.  A court reporter will be available for anyone wishing to have their comments included in the official transcript for the public hearing.

You can view a copy of the 10 Mile Road Draft Environmental Assessment at any of the following locations:

It's all about the earth

Lunch trays
The students at Crossroads Middle School are committed to continuing their “green” efforts with recycling of lunch trays this school year. Thanks to their efforts, daily trash bags have been reduced in number from 11 down to 4. WOW! That saves the Earth and reduces refuse removal fees for Northview! Students also routinely “feed” the hungry Crossroads Paper Gator daily with recycled paper.

Paper
We ask the community to join us in this effort! Please feed Northview’s Paper Gators at Northview High School, Crossroads, Highlands, East Oakview, North Oakview or West Oakview. Being good stewards of our resources is a great reason by itself, but in this case Northview also earns funds for recycling!
