Thank you for your inquiry about Natural Beauty Roads. For your review, here is a copy of Public Act 451 of 1994 and Guidelines for Designation of Natural Beauty Roads designated by the Road Commission for Oakland County (click on link above).
As you perhaps know, the goal of the Natural Beauty Road Program is to preserve in a natural, essentially undisturbed condition, certain county local roads having outstanding or unusual natural beauty by virtue of native vegetation and/or natural features within or associated with the right-of-way.
If you decide to pursue a Natural Beauty Road designation I suggest that we meet prior to the submission of your petition. By seeing some examples of past Natural Beauty Road presentations, you'll have a better idea of the requirements.
If you have any further questions about Natural Beauty Roads, please contact Brad Knight at 248-645-2000.
