Although PA 280 authorizes a broad range of activities in which a CIA can be engaged, the activities of the Sashabaw Corridor Improvement Authority have been more narrowly defined by the Township Board. The CIA is focused on providing specific public improvements that will enhance existing business activity and stimulate new investment that is consistent with Township policies. As a result, the improvements contemplated and/or completed include:
- Acquisition of right-of-way and the widening of Sashabaw Road north of the Interstate 75 interchange (ROAD WORK COMPLETED, PUNCH LIST ITEMS REMAIN TO BE COMPLETED IN SPRING 2020);
- Improvements to the Interstate 75 bridge and interchange; and
- Completion of streetscape improvements, such as landscaping, irrigation, signage, and coordinated lighting.
