Neighborhoods - Logan

Tree-lined Traver Blvd., on the city's northeast side, is home to Logan Elementary, with condos and apartments across from the school and quiet streets of well-kept colonials leading to the aptly named Placid Way Park behind the school.

This is the largest elementary school area in the district, stretching out from the city into portions of Ann Arbor, Northfield, Salem, and Superior townships. The area is ethnically diverse, with one of the highest concentrations of Asian Americans in the city. Many people have settled on this side of town for its convenient access to metropolitan Detroit.

Subdivisions are located off Dhu Varren, including the 1990s vintage Foxfire and Dhu Varren Park. The former 109-acre Nixon Farm is being developed with North Oaks' 472 new residences, consisting of clusters of attached homes. The Plymouth Road Mall and Traver Village offer stores and restaurants. Logan school itself is surrounded by modest single-family homes and the 210-unit Traver Ridge apartment complex.

The Logan area stretches north of US-23 and M-14. Beyond the reach of public sewer and water, homes here are on large lots of 2 acres or more. The area on and around Warren Rd. offers modest homes with lots of acreage on dirt roads. In the Pine Brook Estates subdivision off Gleaner Hall, north of Pontiac, homes cluster on 1-acre lots around a 22-acre common area that includes several ponds. The 100-home Tanglewood community, south of M-14 and east of Dixboro, features multistory contemporary homes on large lots.

Logan serves some students from the Arrowwood Hills Cooperative, as well as families in the 475-unit Willowtree complex across from North Campus. Off Huron Pkwy. are the 100-unit Ironwood Place apartments and Parkway Meadows, whose 212 units are targeted at low-income residents and seniors. Nearby are the 88 Traver Lakes condos.

From Logan, students go on to Clague Middle School. Those living east of Nixon go to Huron High; the rest attend Skyline.
