Plymouth Board of Public Works & Safety is considering requests


Members of the Plymouth Board of Public Works and Safety approved two requests submitted during Tuesday night’s meeting.

Jeannie Xaver of Saint Michael Catholic Church told the Board of Public Works and Safety about their plan to hold the annual Corpus Christie Walk on Sunday, June 2NL.

The Corpus Christi procession is a centuries-old tradition of the Catholic faith to process the Real Presence of Jesus – the Eucharist – in public. The feast of Corpus Christi was established in 1247 in Liège, Belgium.

Parishioners walk from the Knight’s of Columbus near Martins Supermarket to St. Michael Church on Center Street. They walk on the sidewalk of Jefferson Street and ask for help crossing Michigan Street.

The Public Works and Safety Board has approved the request.

The second request, from George Schricker at the Wild Rose Moon, asked for three parking spaces in front of his building at 113 & 115 North Michigan Street to be blocked starting May 20.e until July 3rd. Schricker has hired someone to complete improvements to the masonry facade of his building, including removing paint, cleaning and applying a water repellent to the masonry.

The Public Works and Safety Board unanimously approved the request.

The last request was from Jan Lemler, who brought a safety problem to the attention of the board. He volunteers at the Restore and Brightspeed is right across the street. There is a large communications tower on their property that is locked, but the gate is open. Lemler said the city should discuss their concerns with the property owner that someone would attempt to climb the tower structure.

Lemler also discussed the need for sidewalks for pedestrians and cyclists on West Jefferson Street and the concern for light poles located in the middle of the sidewalks on East Jefferson Street. He would also like to see a sidewalk on Oak Drive from Jefferson Street to U.S. 30.
