The Safety Paths and Trails Committee (SPTC) was established in 2007 to make recommendations to the Board of Trustees concerning the planning, analysis, and implementation of a township-wide trail system. 

Composed of township officials and residents, the SPTC holds regular meetings to establish criteria to aide in the section of potential projects. Working with with engineering consultants, they consider path location, design, and cost and secure necessary easements. SPTC also establishes guidelines which will help direct the implementation and maintenance of safety paths and works to share information with residents. 

The Safety Paths and Trails Committee works as an advisory body to the elected Oakland Township Board of Trustees.  

The SPTC generally meets on the first Wednesday of the month in the Township Hall at 5:30pm. Citizen comment is always welcome. Always check the township website for time and location updates. Most meetings are televised live on Comcast channel 17 or on the township website where recordings of past meetings can be viewed. If you can’t attend in person, please email your SPTC comments to Adam Kline, Township manager, at akline@oaklandtownship.org.
