As we anticipate the release of Detroit's Complete Streets Ordinance from the city's Law Department, who has been analyzing the language and ideas of the document since 2011, the Mayor's office is holding a community meeting to get feedback from residents about their ideas for a Complete Streets law in Detroit.

While the City Planning Commission, Planning and Development Department, DDOT, and the Department of Health and Wellness Promotion have issued statements and letters in support of the ordinance, we should not expect all public and government entities to support the idea.

Come en mass June 27 at 7 pm to the Erma Henderson Auditorium on the 13th floor of the Municipal Center to voice your opinions and ideas in support of Complete Streets in Detroit. 

If residents want to see this ordinance passed, you should come out to entice officials and make arguments supporting this important placemaking initiative and to take Detroit another step forward in the right direction. 

Bring your friends, neighbors, co-workers, colleagues and moms, dads, sisters and brothers to come tell officials why a bikeable, walkable, transit- and disabled-friendly city is crucial to the progress and revitalization of Detroit!

Parking is available at meters and in the Ford Underground garage on Jefferson between Woodward and Randolph.

Bike parking, unfortunately, will not be available but there should be a sign pole or two you can lock up on...

*This will be the first in a series of community meetings as outlined int he 2012 Detroit City Charter.

If you want more information call Eunice Hayes at 313-224-3703 or Frazier Kimpson at 313-224-4733.

See you there!
