The Bloomfield Hills Surf Club was established in 1962 as a private community swim club serving dozens of surrounding communities. In 1966, the I-75 business loop cut through these communities leaving the Surf Club isolated from those communities.
With the population growth in the area over the past 40 years, it is impossible for children to get to and from the Surf Club and the surrounding neighborhoods safely without the use of a motor vehicle. Surrounding the area are numerous bike and pedestrian paths, but none that allow for the safe passage across the 6 lane, I-75 feeder section of Square Lake Road. In addition, the surrounding communities have no access to newer paths connecting to the larger Clintion River Trail and Oakland County trail system.
Without pedestrian access to this area, the community immediately surrounding the Surf Club has no safe access to the Oakland County trail system, and The Surf Club is inaccessible to families that would like to safely visit without the use of a motor vehicle.

We, the undersigned, call on all Oakland County and Michigan State entities involved in pedestrian and bike path construction to connect existing and planned safety paths east from Opdyke Road and west from Woodward Avenue via a proposed safety path on the north side of Square Lake Road using paths, bridges, and/or tunnels across busy roadways and railways.
