ADA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM) -- Plans are moving forward to re-invent Ada.
We've told you about the $13 million project before. Plans call for removing a strip mall on Ada Dr. and creating access to the river.
Designers say the idea is to expand and complement the existing village, as well as adding parks and other green space.
"People move to a community because [of] the restaurants, the retail establishments, but they also like the parks and they like the community gathering spaces," said Ada Township Chairman Bob Kullgren.
To help make it easy for people who are walking, the design calls for a round-about on M-21 near Amway. Right now, there is no easy way for Amway employees to cross the four lanes of traffic to access the village on the other side.
Township leaders discussed the plans at a meeting Monday night.
