The City of East Lansing will hold a public Complete Streets Forum on Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 7 p.m. at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road.
The public forum, which will be facilitated by Michigan Complete Streets Coalition partner Greenway Collaborative President Norm Cox, will provide public education on East Lansing’s draft Complete Streets Ordinance and provide community members an opportunity to ask questions and comment on the draft ordinance.
The City of East Lansing was recently awarded a grant to establish a Complete Streets Ordinance by the Michigan Department of Community Health. The Complete Streets Ordinance would create a policy that all future road projects consider all modes of transportation including vehicles and bicycles, as well as pedestrians.
“The Complete Streets Ordinance would guide all future street design,” said Department of Public Works Director Todd Sneathen. “It would lay out the framework to better integrate safe and healthy transportation options such as sidewalks, bike paths and bike lanes.”
