The 10 Mile/Napier intersection and 10 Mile from Copperwood to Nepavine will close to traffic from July 17 through mid-October. The detour will be Griswold to 8 Mile to Novi Road, back to 10 Mile and vice versa.
An access route to all homes and businesses in the area will be maintained at all times.

Shoreline Restoration - Drakes Bay Dr.
Crews have completed the removal of the tall willows along Drakes Bay Dr. The area begins at Reeds Pointe and moves west until the first house on Drakes Bay.
The Master Association is working with Creating Sustainable Landscapes, LLC and the DEQ to restore the shoreline. This is a multi-year project to return it to it's natural state. Going forward it will have ongoing maintenance.
Please contact the Boathouse if you have any questions regarding this project.
"Good to Know"
Our Friends in the Woods
We have animals that roam freely in our woods. Deer, squirrels, rabbits and even coyotes. Although coyotes are not a threat to people, just be aware they are out there if you do have small pets. Never approach a wild animal for your own safety.
Trash and Yard Waste Pick-up
Thursday is pick up day for garbage and recycling. With the exception of Reserves and Preserves which is Tuesday. Yard waste is typically the first full week of April through the end of November. Please cover your waste containers and secure your recycling so on the windy days it doesn't blow into your neighbor's yard. Holidays will push pickup out one day.
