The Delhi Charter Township Board voted Tuesday to move forward with efforts to expand the local trail system and to grant a tax abatement to Magna International Inc. to build a new assembly line. The line is projected to bring about 35 jobs to the Holt area. The trail expansion is designed to make Holt a “walkable community,” said C.J. Davis, the township supervisor. It will be done in two parts. The first, which is nearly ready to begin construction, would expand the Lansing River Trail into Holt. The second, for which the board approved about $650,000 over three years, would continue the expansion of the trail system south toward Mason.
