HW residents Bruce Carnick and Harry Katkowsky have organized a fundraiser for golfers and all net proceeds will be used to fund improvements at Rackham. Although Rackham is located in Huntington Woods, the golf course is owned by the City of Detroit and managed by Signet Golf Associates. Carnick and Katkowsky recognize that the City of Detroit has limited resources and investment in the golf course and the clubhouse have not kept up with the demands of a first-class golf course. On Saturday, May 18th, the 1st Annual Short Game Skills Challenge will take place at Rackham which includes playing 36 holes, a continental breakfast and lunch. The entry fee is $99 and first prize is $1,000. Donations from individuals not taking part in the golfing challenge are welcome.
Residents will be informed about trimming or removals on their property before the work begins. Trimmers do not remove trees without permission. More information on their communication plan can be found on the DTE website.
DTE has notified the City that they are undertaking a streetlight reliability project to address the ongoing issue with street light outages between Wyoming and Woodward. Starting in February, DTE contractor Harlan Electric will begin troubleshooting and cable testing existing underground streetlight wires along the streets marked on the attached map.
Upon identification of any cable irregularities, those cable sections will be marked for cable replacement. The replacement will be completed by using a directional bore method so disruption within the City right of way will be minimized. Residents in the area will see miss Dig flags installed prior to the underground work beginning. Any restoration to the ground within the right of way will be addressed in the early summer. Please contact Amy Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 248.581.2632 if you have questions on the project.
