Paving project approved
for Canterbury Court
by KIMBERLY SCHERERThe six homeowners along the gravel road, Canterbury Court, in Washington Township will soon have a paved road.
Observer Special Writer
After a public hearing Jan. 23, the Board of Trustees approved a Special Assessment District that will pay for the paving of their road from 27 Mile Road to the end of its cul-de-sac. The cost of the project will be divided between the homeowners at the assessor's discretion and placed on their tax rolls.
Resident Bill Large said he and the other homeowners have been paying $500 per year per home to maintain their gravel road. That amount has paid for chloride applications and road grading.
Five of the six landowners signed an agreement in favor of the paving. Large said the landowner who is not in agreement owns property but does not live along the road like the other five.
The project is estimated to cost $167,000 and the residents hope to have that amount spread over a 10-year span. Large said the residents also hope the amount will be split evenly among the six, but ultimately, it will be up to the assessor.
