Do not put stones, dirt, plastic containers, landscape timbers, brick, landscape fabric or plastic weed barriers in containers as they are not compostable.

The Shelby Township Sidewalk Committee's GAP program installs 6,019 feet of new sidewalk throughout the township. A 1,348–foot span on the north side of 24 Mile Road connects Seven Oaks Drive to the Macomb Orchard Trail. This sidewalk, in turn, provides a total span of more than 4,000 feet of sidewalk between the trail and Shelby Road.
The 2019 Sidewalk Gap Program is administered by the township’s Department of Public Works. To contact the DPW, call 586-731-5990 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To contact the Sidewalk Committee, call the Clerk’s Office at 586-731-5102.
