Public Open House:

On August 29, 2018, Cleveland Township hosted a Public Open House at the Cleveland Township Hall in Leelanau County to kick off the preliminary design process for the proposed section of Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail between CR 669 to CR 651.  The open house was an opportunity for the community to learn about the design process and provide input on the trail. Large maps were available for participants to identify concerns and opportunities related to the proposed trail corridor, and comment cards were distributed for additional input.
