During this virtual event, there will be a brief presentation followed by a question-and-answer session. Questions can be submitted during the meeting using the chat tool.

Accommodations can be made for persons who require mobility, visual, hearing, written, or other assistance for participation. Large print materials, auxiliary aids or the services of interpreters, signers, or readers are available upon request. Please contact Orlando Curry at 517-335-4381 or complete Form 2658 for American Sign Language (ASL) located on the Title VI webpage: https://loom.ly/lxNoO6A Requests should be made at least five days prior to the meeting date. Reasonable efforts will be made to provide the requested accommodation or an effective alternative, but accommodations may not be guaranteed.

BACKGROUND:
Originally planned to replace the existing interchange at I-75/12 Mile Road, MDOT and OCP have revised the design to incorporate a diverging diamond interchange (DDI). This innovative design will improve safety and traffic flow at this busy interchange. To build a majority of the DDI in one season, 12 Mile Road will be closed to through-traffic under I-75 from March to November 2022. During the rebuilding, local access will be maintained to businesses.
Segment 3 of the I-75 modernization project is a multi-year rebuilding effort on more than 5 miles of pavement, replacing bridges, installing retaining and noise walls, and building a state-of-the-art drainage tunnel between M-102 (Eight Mile Road) and 13 Mile Road. To view the public meeting materials after the event and to learn more about the I-75 modernization project, visit www.modernize75.com.

Find out about the Memorial Day celebration and other upcoming events in the City below!

We were excited to hear the Governor announce the revisions to the ‘MI Vacc to Normal” plan eliminating restrictions on gatherings effective July 1. Unfortunately, we were forced to make decisions months ago related to our most significant event, the Festival in the Park with fireworks. At that time, there was a restriction of 300 people. Given our inability to control the number of attendees at the Fireworks, we made the difficult decision to cancel for the overall safety of our residents and staff. Other smaller events that ran for a longer period and allowed for more social distancing were allowed to move forward.

Please come out and enjoy these events, and I hope to see you next year at the Festival in the Park.

May 29 – Memorial Day Celebration 10:00 a.m. City Hall
May 30 - Native Plant Sale 2:00p.m.-5:00p.m. Civic Center near Library
June 5 – Bike Rodeo, 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m., Civic Center Park
June 11 – Fitness Court Launch Party 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. Huffman Park
June 19 – Juneteenth Celebration 12:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. Civic Center Park

Purple Rose Concert Reading

Join the Purple Rose Theatre Company for their next play reading of "Light" over Zoom on June 19 @ 10:30am. The Purple Rose Theatre is partnering with the Chelsea District Library to present a play reading over Zoom. You can join them from the comfort of your own home!

A prodigal sister returns home and upends the lives of her devout younger sister, family friends and, most of all, the eleven-year-old son she abandoned. The inevitable collision sparks a crisis that will either greatly reward or destroy everything they treasure, in an intricate and suspenseful portrayal of one Black family’s journey of forgiveness.

How to watch: Please use the LINK below to register. You will receive a Zoom link in an email. There is no cost to virtually attend this reading.
