New Bike Fix-it Stations and Racks in Pontiac

Thanks to a grant from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, with matching funds from FCRT, the Oakland County Health Division and the "Healthy Pontiac, We Can Coalition" have installed multiple amenities to assist in the use of bicycles as a means of transportation across Pontiac. 
Bike racks, wayfinding signage and fix-it stations have all
been installed.

 

New Donated Bench Installed

Travelers on the Clinton River Trail now have a new place to rest near downtown Rochester thanks to the generous donation of area resident Gelene Pigott. Working through the FCRT Memorial Bench Program, Gelene provided the necessary funds for installation of an ADA compliant bench at the Letica Road trailhead overlooking both the trail and the Clinton River.

 

Gelene and her two sons, Troy and Trent Pigott, are frequent users of the Clinton River Trail. One day while discussing the trail, Gelene suggested someday it would be nice have a bench on the trail in her honor. Her sons responded “why not do it now so you can enjoy it yourself?” That started the process of working with FCRT and the City of Rochester to find an appropriate location, get the bench ordered and have it installed.
