portion, less than a mile long,
is narrow and unpaved.
The "natural beauty" deci-
sion, expected within the next
few months, would likely af-
fect the future of a proposed
water main six feet in
diameter that the Detroit
Water and Sewage Depart-
ment hoped to run • smack
below that stretch of 14 Mile.
In the planning stages for
nearly two decades, the main
would link an existing water
system near 1-75 and Adams
Road with a pumping station
near 14 Mile and Inkster. The
new main would provide
water from Lake Huron to
southern Oakland County,
now served with water from
the Detroit River. Some have
claimed that the "natural
beauty" label is an attempt to
disrupt the water main
project.
"I don't think the two are
related at all," said William
McEntee, environmental con-
cerns coordinator for the
Oakland County Road Com-
mission. "No one is against
it."
Last week, local residents
filled the chambers of the
Franklin Village Council for
a public hearing conducted by
the Oakland County Board of
Road Commissioners to
discuss this section of 14 Mile
and the importance of preser-
ving natural beauty in urban
settings.
The group claims more
than 20 tree species and 30
different herbs are growing
on the roadside. In addition,
deer, fox, pheasants, herons
and three types of squirrels
have been sighted.
In the next 30 days,
McEntee must make a recom-,
mendation on the designation
to the road commission,
which will make the final
decision. However, the com-
mission could hold off on their
decisibn until the water main
is installed.

while preserving the environ-
mental characteristics of a
Herman Frankel Organization Residen-
tial Community.
There is complete separation between
the Full Service Convalescent Home on
the upper floor and the Supportive
Care Manor on the lower floor. The
building is on a hillside and both levels
have direct access to the extensively
landscaped grounds.

Rex Lanyi and Herman Frankel, the
developers, are particularly proud that
Windemere both functionally and
aesthetically provides a re s idential
environment that preserves dignity,
beauty, and maximum independence at
a time in life that its residents require
some medical and social support.
