From an October 5th report by Livingston County broadcaster, WHMI (93.5FM):

"The [Hamburg Township] board approved a motion authorizing the feasibility study, which will cost $22,800. Hohl says it will cost the township only $2,000, since $16,800 will be coming from the DNR in the form of a grant, the Washtenaw County Dept. of Parks and Recreation will be chipping in $2,000 and Hardwood Solutions, a Chelsea-based company, another $2,000. Hohl says the trail would connect with the Hudson Mills Metropark in Washtenaw County on North Territorial Road and from there go through Hamburg Township, taking one of four proposed routes. If approved, the local portion of the trail will connect to the Lakelands Trail State Park in Hamburg Township, which runs 26 miles from Livingston County to Stockbridge in Ingham County. Hohl says the reason for the study is to determine the most feasible, and most economical, route through the township."


In a twenty minute discussion, the Board learned about the proposal, the actors, and the actions.
