This "Road" serves as a connector between the County Road system and the National Forest Road system.

This road was found to be illegally obstructed by adjoining residents.
Those residents are now petitioning the Road Commission to abandon the road.

Don't let law-breaking, anti-access advocates win!

Please sign the petition:

THANK YOU!

Thank you to those who assisted by signing the e-petition! :D

We won!

The Hearing was this morning.
The Newaygo CRC voted to NOT abandon the road but to look into the feasibility of putting it back on the section line as platted. It currently leaves the deeded easement to pass around a gully. This falls under the 'Highway By User' statute that essentially says 'Where a road ends up over time (at Least 10 years) is where the CRC has a right of way, regardless of the maps and deeding.


They again affirmed that the NCRC has never abandoned a road if there was opposition to the proposal.

THANK YOU for your help!

Glad to help in any way we can.

Even though some of us are half way across the country.

Pat, way to go!!!  It's always great news to hear that we win--particularly when something as simple, easy and fast as signing an online petition may have contributed to the victory.  Just goes to show these things can make a difference.

Thanks, as always, for all the efforts you are making up there in MI and for sharing them here with us!  WOOO HOOOO!!!!!  Keep up the great work.
