Ypsilanti’s city council will discuss making improvements to Frog Island Park tonight.
That includes working with DTE Energy to install lighting along the Border-to-Border trail in that area for safety purposes. Mayor Beth Bashert says the current path at Frog Island will also get an upgrade as part of a project that’s being rolled out by Washtenaw County to make overall improvements to the Border-to-Border trail system.
Mayor Beth Bashert: We’re widening it, making it prettier, smoother and safer. And I think that’s going to add a lot of enjoyment to that park in our city.
Bashert says that by widening the trail, it will also allow residents to comply with COVID-19 social distancing guidelines.
