Meeting held on May 6th at the Lone Tree Inn on Milford Road.
The powerpoint presentation was approved by the members present with a few minor changes.
It was agreed that the following would be the preferred order for presentations:
Oakland County Commissioners
Oakland County Board of Supervisors
Individual Townships anytime after the first two presentations
Individual Trails Councils (Huron Valley, Headwaters, etc.)
Oakland County Planners
Oakland County Parks and Recreation
Road Commission of Oakland County
Any Equestrian Groups that are interested.
It was decided to ask the Oakland County Trails Council, what type of data they would be interested in before we send out volunteers to go door to door.
May 14th Meeting of the Oakland County Trails Advisory Council
At this meeting the voting members of the Council agreed that we as equestrians did not need to go door to door and count individual horses.
They will be happy if we count horses in a couple of square miles in each township.
They would also like the number of boarding, training, breeding facilities in each township.
We should especially be sure to count horses in the vicinity of trails or parks where we are requesting access.
We need volunteers for each township.
I currently have volunteers to head the counts in Springfield Township, Milford Township and Rose Township in the vicinity of Rose Oaks.
If you know equestrians in other townships, please have them email the Oakland Equestrian Coalition and let us know. We should get on this count ASAP.
