Maps of the Proposed Pathway
Non-motorized PROPOSED pathway between the City of Linden and City of Fenton is represented in this aerial map provided by Nowak & Fraus Engineers in cooperation with LAFF and the local communities. The pathway runs from near Jennings Road to the west side of Tri-Angle Park in Linden. The pathway is approximately 2 miles long with .6 miles in the City of Fenton, 1.3 miles in Fenton Township and .1 miles in the City of Linden. As always when you see your local representatives to these communities tell them you desire these pathways be built in our southern Genesee County Communities. THANKS.
This map represents the PROPOSED 2.0 mile long non-motorized pathway from Haviland Beach Road at Lobdell Road through the Linden School Campus and along Silver Lake Road to the west city limits of Linden where it will connect to the city's existing sidewalks and bicycle lanes. The plan was provided to us by Flies & VandenBrink Engineering, Inc. in cooperation with Argentine Township. As always if you talk with your local community representatives remind them of the importance of these pathways and your wants and desires for them. THANKS
Five year parks plan
City of Fenton public review of their proposed park and recreation master plan is now available for review and comment. This is a very important part of the process and a requirement of the state MDNR. The public input is needed so that the plan satisfies the needs and wants of the citizens. If you are interested in non-motorized, more parks, kayaking, park improvements or other park related items you should consider review and comment on this plan as it is the basis for development for the next five years and also will be the tool to gain grant funding for these park developments. The plan is available for review at the city office and at the Fenton Branch Library. There will be two public meetings, dates not yet available.

LAFF Pathway concept route for
connecting LAFF communities
These images represent a concept route for CONNECTING COMMUNITIES of City of Linden, Argentine Township, Fenton Township and City of Fenton with a non-motorized pathway system. This routing was derived from public hearings held by the various communities and the Genesee County Planning Commission. The route has been supported by resolution of each community board or council in their public meetings. Final design work and additional public input is required to develop construction engineering plans.
Where we started and where we are going
Public meetings were held in 2009 and 2014 (at the local and county level) and, in conjunction with the Genesee County Planning Commission, the following routes in our region have been identified for prioritization:
The LAFF Pathway’s vision is to connect the Linden, Argentine, Fenton, and Fenton Township (LAFF) communities with non-motorized pathways that create recreational opportunities and alternative forms of transportation, improve public safety, increase community and home values, and realize economic gains for area businesses.
The LAFF Pathway will seek financial and volunteer resources to assist our local communities with the construction of non-motorized pathways.
The total economic benefits from bicycling in Michigan are $668 million, according to the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) 2014 study. This does not account for dollars generated by other users of trails such as runners and walkers, to mention a few.
