Hello Neighbors!

I am so happy that the Canton Center Road reconstruction is done, and opened ahead of schedule! This large-scale project that began in April was funded in part by Canton’s Road Millage.

We received news recently that Canton is set to receive $750,000 in State of Michigan funding to put toward closing the 53.8 miles of sidewalk gaps in the community. The funds in the State’s 2022-2023 budget bill, recently signed by Governor Whitmer, were secured by State Senator Dayna Polehanki and State Representative Ranjeev Puri. In the same budget bill, Representative Puri also secured an additional $5 million for Canton’s roads and pedestrian pathways.

These funds will allow us to expand the Sidewalk Gap Program and help provide a more connected and walkable community.

On a separate note, I know that residents are hearing about water quality these last few weeks. I would like to assure you that Canton’s water is safe, and that we take the safety of our water supply system very seriously.

Each year, Canton issues a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) that gives a detailed analysis about where Canton’s water comes from and the treatment process it goes through. It also gives consumers detailed information about the quality of their drinking water. The water report can be found at www.cantonmi.org/CantonWaterReport.

If you have any questions, please call Canton’s Division of Public Works at 734/397-1011.
