Annual Assessing Re-Inspection Program

The Delhi Township Assessing Department will be heading out into neighborhoods beginning in May until this fall. This is an annual re-inspection program, recommended by the Michigan State Tax Commission. Approximately 20% of each class of properties is inspected each year to ensure accurate and equitable assessments. Orange postcards will be mailed to affected neighborhoods shortly before staff visits.

So what does this mean for you?

Township Assessing Department staff will be going door to door in various residential neighborhoods. Employees will be wearing a visible Delhi Township issued ID badge for identification purposes. An interior inspection and/or verification of information will take place. This takes approximately 10 minutes.

What if you're not at home when we come by?

For property owners not at home, an orange door tag with a contact telephone number will be left. Those receiving a door tag are encouraged to call and schedule an inspection. If staff is unable to verify records in person, an estimated assessment will be determined.

Who's first?

The first neighborhoods Appraisers will be working in are:

- Huntley Square Subdivision

- Sterling Farms Subdivision

- Holley Acres Subdivision

 

Please check the Delhi Township Facebook page and Twitter feed for updates. Property owners with questions or concerns should contact the Delhi Township Assessing Department at (517) 694-1502.

Ingham County Drain Commissioner's Office to Repair Ferley Drain

The Ingham County Drain Commissioner's Office (ICDC) will begin work on the Ferley Drain in April. This project will help alleviate the repeated flooding issues in the area.

The Ferely Consolidated Drain Maintenance and Improvement project results from a July 27, 2015 petition submitted by landowners within the Drainage District. Petitioners wanted the drainage improved to alleviate the repeated flooding of properties and homes.

The proposed project includes the installation of enclosed storm sewer and storm structures to improve drainage in flooded areas (primarily those adjacent to Dell Road, east and west of Pine Tree Rd.); the improvement of multiple drain inlets; and the brushing and clearing of obstructions of the main drain open channel just upstream of its outlet into Sycamore Creek.

Project construction is scheduled to begin after Monday, April 16, 2018. The project should reach substantial completion by September 1, 2018 and total completion by October 1, 2018.

Dell Road will be closed from April 15 - June 15 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Traffic to Dell Rd. driveways and neighborhood roads will be maintained within the construction zone. All other east and west bound traffic will be detoured via Willoughby Road. ICDC staff will coordinate with landowners next to the construction area.

To stay updated on the project and to get information on the road detour plan, please visit the Ferley Consolidated Drain website managed by the ICDC.

 

Update: Dell Road will be completely closed between Pine Tree Road and Dellridge Road starting Monday, June 25 through Wednesday, June 27, 2018 for the installation of a new culvert under Dell Road. Traffic will be detoured onto Willoughby Road for this closure both day and night. Pine Tree Road will be open for through traffic. See the June 22, 2018 press release for additional details.

New storm sewer trace map

In compliance with the Township’s SAW grant, the Public Services Department built this trace map to improve public education about the storm sewer system throughout Delhi Township. The map takes a user specified location and highlights the flow path of storm water downstream of that location. Other data in the map includes drainsheds to show users which drainage basin(s) their storm water travels through on its way to either the Sycamore Creek or the Grand River.

Check it out here.

Leaf collection and disposal is important for the environment

DID YOU KNOW?

Residents should never allow yard waste to be washed down storm drains or dump grass clippings and leaves onto the street or in a roadside ditch.

WHY?

Because rain water that enters storm drains and roadside ditches eventually flows to a body of water without treatment, therefore leaves and grass clippings will eventually go with it.

The problem is nutrients in yard waste can lead to harmful algae growth in those bodies of water, including a local creek, pond or lake. When it reaches the water, it decomposes and uses up the oxygen, which kills fish. This is the same water we use for fishing, swimming, boating and recreation. Also, leaves that are left in the street can block drains and cause flooding. 


 


Realize Cedar Project to Revitalize Downtown Holt

Realize Cedar will redevelop the Cedar Street corridor across Delhi Township by improving sidewalks, street parking, and roadways on Cedar Street to create a safe, walkable community for all age groups. The project will transform Cedar Street into the heart of the community, a place where Holt residents can live, work, and shop together.

By updating our downtown infrastructure, we will create an atmosphere where residents, businesses, and visitors can thrive through improved motorist and pedestrian safety and better traffic flow. This initiative will connect our community in new ways and attract new businesses and developments to our area, create jobs, and boost local property values.

The Realize Cedar project will take place on Cedar Street between Holt Rd. and Aurelius Rd. Homes and businesses along this stretch of Cedar Street will still be accessible during construction.

Realize Cedar is funded by the Delhi Downtown Development Authority (DDA) and does not come from additional tax dollars or special assessments. The DDA is dedicated to helping the business community and residents of Delhi Township prosper together.

Realize Cedar will begin in May 2018 and be completed by December 2018. To keep up to date on the project's progress and to find more information, visit the Realize Cedar website.
