The Oakland County Neighborhood and Housing Development division is excited to launch a quick Oakland County Neighborhood and Housing Needs Survey.  We genuinely want to know how Oakland County residents see their own communities.  In order to give us the most diverse representation, we are sharing this far and wide.  We hope that everyone will take 10 minutes to take the survey, from Holly to Ferndale and Madison Heights to South Lyon.  We want homeowners, renters, families, and couples.  We’d love to hear from seniors, college students, Veterans, New Americans, and everyone in between.  Anyone who lives, works or plays here is invited to participate!  The more survey-takers we have, the more complete the picture of Oakland County housing and community needs will become. 

Please feel free to share the link with your network/s.  The survey is in English, Spanish, Arabic, and Simplified Chinese.  Any questions can be directed to chi@oakgov.com or 248.858.0493.

 

Beverly Hills, MI  The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) expects work to begin on Barron Road from Grange Hall Road to Groveland Road in Groveland Township on March 22. 

The road will close to traffic April 12 through approximately Nov. 5 for gravel road paving.          

            During the closure, access to homes and businesses along this section of Barron Road will be maintained. The detour for through traffic will be Groveland Road to Jossman Road to Grange Hall Road, back to Barron Road and vice versa. 

            The approximately $5.5 million project is mostly federally funded, with the remaining portion shared by RCOC, Groveland Township and Oakland County general government (through the Tri-Party program).

            The 2.39-mile project includes:

  • Paving the gravel road with asphalt
  • Placing concrete curbs and gutters
  • Installing storm sewers to improve road drainage
  • Improving the sight distance for vehicles using the road

The contractor for the project is Iafrate Construction of Warren. Barron Road carries approximately 500 vehicles daily.
