Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance will be on the road this spring and early summer, training both public officials and citizens alike on Complete Streets. Included in the training will be an overview of Complete Streets, its benefits, local policy development, stakeholder engagement, and gauging community readiness. Stay tuned as we line up more dates and locations and notify us by phone at 517.485.6022 or e-mail nancy@michigantrails.org if you would like to participate in any particular session. The trainings are available at no charge because they have been provided through a DALMAC grant from the Tri-County Bicycle Association, but they do require an RSVP.
