Meeting To Improve Westgate Park - March 12

Meeting To Improve Westgate Park  - March 12

From Alpine Township Offices:

Westgate Neighborhood Park Improvements!


The swing set, overhead monkey bars, spring teeter-totter and play house were removed for the sanitary sewer construction last summer and it is doubtful they can be re-installed. Replacement playground equipment is expensive so we would like your input on what you would like to see in Westgate Neighborhood Park. By providing your input, you’ll help determine what improvements the Township will make to the park this year, so your voice is extremely important.


The Alpine Township Parks and Recreation Committee invites you to join them and share your input at 7 p.m.

Walker to address Sidewalk Issue on Alpine Ave NW

Walker to address Sidewalk Issue on Alpine Ave NW

Walker has some plans for part of this year’s Federal Community Block Grant Funds; they are hoping to make Alpine Avenue much better connected for pedestrian traffic.

Sidewalks on Alpine, near the I-96 expressway, cause problems for people walking or in motorized wheel chairs. At present time, the sidewalk on the northwest side of the expressway ends at Logan’s and on the south end, at 3 Mile.

It may take close to a year to even come up with a design to connect sidewalks because of the off/on ramps. After coming up with a plan and design, Walker City Engineer Scott Connors said, “then the Michigan Department of Transportation has to approve the design before anything more can be done.”

It is surprising how many people walk over the expressway, dodging traffic as they walk along.
