Falling Waters Trail Connector:
We are excited to announce that construction on the Teft Road Connector Trail is planned to begin within the next few days. This trail will link Main St/M-60 sidewalks to the Falling Waters Trail at Lime Lake County Park. The DNR/Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund awarded Spring Arbor Township a grant to build a non- motorized trail along the Teft Road right-of-way in 2017. Construction of the trail was originally scheduled for 2019; however, the project was delayed due to the Teft Road rebuild and Covid-19 pandemic. This connector trail further builds on the Jackson County Non-Motorized Master Plan adopted in 2020. All users of the Falling Waters Trail will now have an opportunity for safe access to Main St in Spring Arbor where you can find food, coffee, retail opportunities and more without having to use surface roads. The project has been awarded to local contractor Bailey Excavation and work will begin with tree removal and utility work, followed by excavation work in the early spring. Follow this project via our Facebook page or web site at Dedication is planned for summer.

Local Road Millage Press Release

September 19, 2019

We are pleased to announce that the Road Millage of 3.99 mills will be reduced to 3.25 mills on the December Winter Tax Statement. In 2017 the voters of Spring Arbor Township approved a Local Road Millage of 3.99 mills to rebuild all “LOCAL” public roads in the township. Working with JCDOT we were able to realize lower than expected construction costs, in part by starting this project in 2017. The entire project will be completed in 2020. Additionally, working with local financial partners, the Township was able to invest the bond proceeds at higher than expected interest rates. From the beginning, we promised we would prudently manage the project so that we could provide maximum value and savings to our people. This millage rate reduction will be realized on the December 2019 Winter Tax Statement.

The project remains on schedule and we expect several more roads to be completed yet this fall. If you have any questions, please contact me at: or 517-750-2800 x201. Thank you for your continued patience during this project and the M-60 MDOT project this year.
