Harrison Township Officials add roadblock to new trail

If hikers and bikers are a truly threat to the Selfridge base then there are bigger problems than this proposed 2.5 mile trail.

From the Detroit News:

Selfridge Air National Guard base officials said Tuesday they will continue to evaluate plans for a pedestrian pathway along Lake St. Clair despite township officials’ concerns about security.

The township board on Monday night approved a resolution by a 4-3 vote urging Selfridge to take safety into consideration before approving any plans for a pathway.

Supervisor Anthony Forlini, who favors the path and voted against the resolution, said he was “disappointed” at the board’s action.

He said it is an opportunity to open up a long-closed stretch of waterfront for the benefit of township residents.

“It is a slap in the face of the residents,” Forlini said. “It is not for us to decide. It is up to the base to decide if we can do this safely.”
