This area represents diverse residential neighborhoods, including suburban and multi-family residential, which are interspersed with two vibrant retail centers in the Ann Arbor-Saline Road vicinity. The retail centers include big boxes and chain restaurants mixed in with local retail outlets.
There is not much green space in this part of the Township other than a few private parks within subdivisions. Even though the area can benefit from better multi-modal transportation, there are sidewalks and other non-motorized facilities, including bus transit, that connect residential neighborhoods to jobs, retail, restaurants, and a public library. The installation of the Lohr-Textile Greenway will provide connectivity between residential, recreational [the Saline Recreation Center located off Textile Road], commercial, and retail spaces in this area of the Township.
