Coming Friday: Resident wants Incochee Woods link to city

TRAVERSE CITY — Fern Spence watches joggers and neighbors traverse a historic farm trail across wooded, scenic private property on the city's west side.

She wants to find a way to turn a private stretch into a public recreation area, and plans to test the wind to determine how much, if any, resentment lingers from a bitter, six-year-old lawsuit that pitted neighbors, developers and city officials against each other.

Spence and some supporters want to obtain a private lot on Wayne Street for TART Trails Inc. to create a dedicated pedestrian walkway that leads to the city's Hickory Meadows park.
