SOUTHFIELD – City officials see Southfield’s Municipal Complex as a “canvas” of sorts, and health is at the center of that blank canvas, council members explained during a recent meeting.
A proposed sidewalk loop for recreational activities, which would encompass the lawn, leads the way in promoting healthy activity on municipal grounds.
“Parks and Recreation has had a plan, pretty much on the books for 20 years, of doing a circular loop in the front lawn,” City Planner Terry Croad explained to council during the Dec. 3 meeting. “I thought it was a great idea for many reasons. As you know, we’re trying to make the City Centre District more pedestrian-friendly and also put life on the street.”
