Oakland University Project

Oakland University is gathering information regarding the potential mixed-use development of the corner of Walton Road and Adams Road.   The university has retained the national consulting firm of Brailsford and Dunlavey to facilitate a market analysis and developer engagement to explore potential opportunities that would directly and indirectly support the university’s mission, generate a consistent revenue stream for the university, and be complementary to the surrounding community.  Once completed, this information will be shared with the OU Board of Trustees at which time the board will make a final determination on next steps, if any.

Adams Road Planning and

Environmental Linkages (PEL) Study


This project involves the preparation and development of a PEL Study and an Environmental Assessment on Adams Road from Hamlin Road to Walton Boulevard (approximately 2.22 miles) in Rochester Hills. This process is expected to take a few years with multiple opportunities for the community to provide their input.  The outcome of the project will be shaped by public input which will be used to craft goals to evaluate alternative improvements along Adams Road. Alternatives could include a variety of improvements and may include no changes.

The PEL process will aid in incorporating environmental and community values early in the planning process and carry through project outcomes. The main benefits of the PEL process are to minimize duplication of effort, document and provide decisions to inform NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act), enhance community and stakeholder involvement, and increase coordination amongst agencies. This integration of engineering, environmental and community considerations will help arrive at a preferred outcome in a more efficient and streamlined manner.
