Why do we need rails to trails paved? I bike and walk my dog on the trails for the last several years and I really don't see a need to pave it. Rumor has it they are going to try and pave it soon... Do they know the pavement is not good for peoples joints and dog paws? I do dog scootering on rails to trails and won't be able to go over two mile with out hurting my dogs paws if they pave... I wish someone would ask the public before doing "improvements".

I grew up on those trails. I find it hard to take in that after all these years they are now talking about it. I know people who still use those trails for their dogs, children, and horses. I agree on they need to ask the public what they think and allow them to make the choice of it being done...

I grew up walking the rails and sleeping to the sound of the trains shaking my bed every night. I was very upset when they removed the old tracks, now they want to pave them. Why! Like Michigan has all this money to throw around. In another post I see where they are talking about closing Hamburg Elementary, my childhood memories are fading with the changing of the times....

The Twp do ask the public what they want.

Right before doing what the Twp wants anyway!

I roller-blade on them in the summer. Needless to say, I can only use the paved areas, so I would definitely be for it.
