Oct. 29 – Oak Park Nine Mile Redesign Kickoff Celebration

OAK PARK, MI  On Tuesday, October 29, 2019 from 3:00pm to 7:00pm, the City of Oak Park will be holding a celebratory event for the completion of the Nine Mile Redesign project, titled the Nine Mile Redesign Kickoff. Members of the public, business community, and media are invited to join officials and staff from both Oak Park and Ferndale for activities and a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Nine Mile Redesign is a grant-funded public improvement project on Nine Mile Road from Coolidge Highway to the City’s eastern border with Ferndale that is aimed at creating a vibrant streetscape, facilitating a more robust community culture, and increasing business growth for the benefit of residents and visitors of all ages. It includes features like a road diet, bike lanes, more commercial parking, a trailhead, two new pocket parks, and a linear park.

During the kickoff event, there will be activities all along Nine Mile Road. Attendees can come play games, listen to music, ride bikes in the new bike lanes, learn about MoGo, learn about the project as a whole, and of course enjoy plenty of free food. Attendees can also take part in the Nine Mile Redesign Kickoff Passport program to receive special gifts. At 6:00pm, there will be a ribbon-cutting and cake-cutting ceremony at the new Seneca Pocket Park, at the intersection of Nine Mile Road and Seneca Street, to celebrate not only the completion of this project, but also Oak Park’s 74th birthday.

The City has several grantors to thank for making this project possible, including the Southeast Michigan Council of Governments, the Michigan Department of Transportation, Oakland County, kaBOOM!, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan, and the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation.
