      Work continues on creating a Special Assesment District (SAD) to provide funding for much needed projects on the Thornapple River. A petition drive to show support for weed control and other efforts was kicked off at the CTRA Annual Meeting. River lot owners are being asked to support the proposed district in the limited access portion of the Thornapple River in Cascade Township. The petition effort is receiving strong support by those contacted by CTRA volunteer petitioners. Some property owners have not yet been contacted. You can help if you are willing to contact lot owners or you are a lot owner that has not been contacted. See Petition:
