For the 2011 grant year, the following local health departments and communities have been awarded an ARRA-Complete Streets grant:

Local Health Department Community
District Health Department #10 City of Big Rapids
City of Ludington
Ingham County Health Department Lansing Township

Western U.P County Health Department City of Hancock

Eight communities
were awarded an ARRA-Complete Streets grants in 2010.

An example of how policy change can be accomplished widely is in Washtenaw County. As a result of funding (in part) and assistance from the Washtenaw County Health Department, the City of Saline was able to pass a Complete Streets ordinance in September, 2010. Recently, Washtenaw area’s regional transportation planning organization, Washtenaw Area Transportation Study, decided to take on Complete Streets as a special planning and visioning project in 2011. WATS will be convening a stakeholder group and have a public engagement process to develop a Complete Streets vision for Washtenaw County, including model policy language, design recommendations, etc.

For more information on the Complete Streets program, please contact Holly Madill at madillh@michigan.gov or (517) 335-8372 or Lisa Grost at grostl@michigan.gov or (517) 335-9781.

Congratulations to all of the grantees!  We look forward to adding more push pins to our Complete Streets policy map.
