The The City of Ypsilanti will hold a public hearing on a proposed Complete Streets ordinance on Wednesday, April 20th, 6pm at City Hall, 1 South Huron Street.  A Complete Streets ordinance basically encourages that when a street is constructed, or rebuilt, that all users, including pedestrians, the handicapped and bicyclists be considered in the final design. The City Planning Department is receiving assistance in drafting the ordinance from the  Washtenaw County Public Health Department, which in turn has received funds from the Michigan Department of Community Health to promote Complete Streets. The Complete Streets workshop will last one hour (again starting at 6pm on April 20th) and will be followed by a meeting of the Ciyt Planning Commission which will review the ordinance.
