Tamarisk ALERT - Attempted Car Thefts
Three reports of theft or attempted theft from cars came to me today from the Tamarisk Neighborhood, as well as similar reports from the Pinecrest Neighborhood, including theft of a car on Ramblewood. These incidents took place overnight Sunday / early Monday morning, July 17/18. Police reports have been filed and I have e-mailed for more information from our ELPD contacts. There were similar incidents last summer.

Make sure that your cars in driveways are locked, your garage doors are closed, and side garage doors are locked. If you see or hear or discover any suspicious activity, call the Police, either at the non-emergency number: 517-351-4220, option 2, or 911, if urgent. Both numbers are answered 24 hours a day.

Major Street Project on North Harrison Road
A major street project will begin on North Harrison Road, between Saginaw Street and Lake Lansing Road, on Monday, June 20. The project is slated for completion by Aug. 19. In order to expedite the work and meet the completion date, the road will be closed to traffic for the duration of the project. Local traffic will be maintained to the extent possible; however, motorists are expected to seek alternate routes if they are able. The City and contractor will be working closely with those residents who have driveways off of Harrison Road. The signed detour will direct northbound Harrison Road traffic to take Saginaw Street east to Abbot Road and head north on Abbot Road to Lake Lansing Road. The detour will direct southbound Harrison Road traffic to take Lake Lansing Road east to Abbot Road and head south on Abbot Road to Saginaw Street.

Be a Good Neighbor: No Noise or Speeding
With warmer weather and later daylight, we’re all able to enjoy more time outside. Remember, however, to be considerate of your neighbors. Common courtesy, as well as City ordinance, prohibits noise (such as lawn work or construction work) after 9 pm. Remind your contracted service workers of these rules, too. Also, on all our neighborhood streets (except Harrison Rd) the speed limit is 25 mph. Speeding is both dangerous to pedestrians and noisy. Please be a good neighbor.
