Robert “Bob” Tetens served as the Director of the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission from 2001 to 2017.  Of the many accomplishments related to the B2B Trail that were achieved under Mr. Tetens’ leadership, a few of the most significant are:

  • Development of the vision, name, and branding of the B2B Trail
  • Constructed the first 10+ miles of new B2B Trail linking existing park systems in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti
  • Achieved buy-in from community partners, municipalities, and other park agencies
  • Established the Non-Motorized millage in partnership with the Washtenaw County Road Commission
  • Instrumental in the development of the Dexter area trails 
  • Expanded the planned B2B route from a 35-mile trail along the Huron River to a 54-mile trail system by extending it west to Chelsea and north to Stockbridge
