Glen Arbor Township hosted a public open house on the evening of August 19. Township officials and project partners shared information on a proposed M-22 connector route for the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.
The Township is now seeking public input as part of the preliminary design process for the proposed Glen Arbor connector trail between S Forest Haven Dr and the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail, where it connects to the Homestead off of Westman Road.

In late 2019, preliminary design for the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail from County Road 669 to Good Harbor Trail wrapped up and a route was recommended and approved by Cleveland and Centerville Townships. This 5-mile section will highlight the best this region has to offer – the natural beauty and rich culture of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It will feature a paved trail and boardwalk pathway separated from the roadway, promoting safe access for all ages and abilities. Engineering is expected to kick off in 2020. We’re grateful to the study group that spent more than a year working through the design and the leadership of Cleveland Township and excited to get to work on the next leg north! For details on the preliminary design process, including the final presentation by the design engineers and a map of the recommended alignment, please visit the project website here.
We are excited to present the TART Trails Benefits Study! The study shows that trails create a sense of community, add an extra layer of tourism, support a health conscious atmosphere year-round, and extend the seasonality of many businesses, among many other benefits. Check it out here!
