This area contains a continuation of residential development from the Northeast area of the Township. It benefits from convenient access to both US-23 and I-94, along with the newest addition to the Township park system, Hickory Woods Park. The other predominant land use in this area (located along Carpenter and Morgan Roads) is industrial. Some of the few remaining industrial parcels in the entire Township are located here.
There is a scarcity of transportation choices in this part of the Township, specifically there is a lack of bus transit. The inability of the existing road network, especially Michigan Avenue, to accommodate non-motorized modes of transportation is a major hurdle to the vision of connectivity for the entire Township.
