The Projects

As part of the naming of TimberTown as an official B2B Trailhead, 4 projects -- independent, yet with each bringing an important  and complementary vision -- are at the core of Reimagined TimberTown. Our Steering Committee is starting to organize to execute the final phases of the project. Click on the icons below for the "rest of the story" and find out how you can help/donate to the fundraising campaign. Donations are processed by Huron Waterloo Pathways Initiative, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that facilitates trail development and use in Washtenaw County.

UPDATE! Money has been raised, cement is poured, fencing in (and opening for play Spring 2024!)

 Kudos to the Chelsea Pickleball group for spurring this project towards completion!

ICYMI, it's the fastest growing sport in the USA! 

It's easy to learn and get a good workout! It's intergenerational - literally for all ages! It's a social activity where you see old friends, make new friends. You're part of a positive, supportive community. Find out how you can play here!

The B2B passes around and through TimberTown making it a perfect location for a new trailhead for all walkers and bikers. The infrastructure part of the project isn't the most glamorous, but it carries a heavy load! Elements include paved parking (so more cars will fit), lighting (to extend the park's hours of use and to deter vandalism), and security cameras.

The Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce will soon launch a "Name the Trailhead Contest!"
