Community Meeting
Safe Routes Grant Options
6:30pm Thurs Feb 20th 
Township Hall

Who: all North Branch community members
What: see and share your opinion about walk/bike routes that could be funded by grant
When: February 20th 6:30pm
Where : North Branch Township Meeting Hall (between M90 and the fire station)

Options for safe walkways and crossings will be presented for all members of the North Branch community to see and ask questions in this public forum at the Township Meeting Room.  Our goal is for our students to have safer paths to walk and bike to school, but the businesses and members of the village and township need to give input on the changes that this grant can fund. This is your chance to have your voice heard as MSU presents their strategies that they have worked up since participating in a walking audit this past fall.

About North Branch

In 1854 the earliest settling of North Branch was undertaken.  The founding fathers were Mr. and Mrs. Richard Beach and Mr. and Mrs. Geroge Simmons.  The nucleus of the village was the post office, store and trading post founded by John and Richard Beach.  So much a center was this, that the settlement was actually called Beachville (sometimes spelled Beechville) for a short time. 

Noteworthy facts of the early years include the assesed valuation of North Branch in 1856 to be $62,000.  The first annual town meeting was held at the home of Richard Beach with a total of twenty-six votes polled.

Two major fires mark the history of North Branch.  In 1871 and particularly in 1881, fire destroyed many parts of the town.  These fires were a contributing factor in the change from Jefferson Street to Huron Street as the main thoroughfare. 

 The Village was incorporated in 1881.  The population was 900.  The town of North Branch is known as township 9 north of range 11 east and sits on the north branch of the Flint River which flows through the township and is the principal stream.
