For the past four years, Pittsfield Township has undertaken various quality-of-life-initiatives, majorly funded by grants, in order to provide for spaces that allow for greater public interaction and engagement while, simultaneously, implementing a comprehensive network of non-motorized sidewalks and pathways that provide inter-linkages between residential, open, commercial, entertainment, cultural, recreation, and retail spaces. The successful completion, in 2012, of the first phase of the Lohr-Textile Greenway (LTG I) comprising of a two mile stretch on Lohr Road heading south to Textile Road and west onto Woodland Drive that, for the first time, inter-connected Saline and Ann Arbor via Pittsfield. The overwhelming success of this and other non-motorized projects in Pittsfield provides impetus for us to continue expanding our non-motorized network such that it is inter-connected, both locally and regionally.
