Sashabaw Road Corridor Improvement Authority (CIA)
The Sashabaw Corridor Improvement Authority (CIA) coordinates specific public improvements to enhance existing business activity and stimulate new investment consistent with Township policies. While the focus of the CIA is to improve both the Interstate 75 bridge and interchange, and Sashabaw Road (primarily from Waldon Road to Clarkston Road), a more minor but significant project is the completion and extension of streetscape improvements that could not be accomplished when the boulevard was constructed due to financial uncertainty at that time. The CIA intends to proceed with streetscaping, most likely on a phased basis, once a final roadway design is agreed to by MDOT and RCOC. The CIA also initiated the design and irrigation plans for the portion of Sashabaw Road south of Waldon Road.
The CIA consists of 7 members including the Township Supervisor. The remaining 6 members are appointed by the Township Supervisor for a 4-year term subject to Township Board approval. Membership must meet or exceed the minimum 5- member requirement. Not less than a majority of the members must be persons having ownership or business interest in property located in the development area. At least one (1) member shall be a resident of the development area or within a ½ mile of the development area.
The Corridor Improvement Authority meets quarterly (January, April, July and October) on Thursdays at 5:00 p.m. in the Township Hall Meeting Room, or on an as needed basis.
