The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) recently released the following map overlaying complete streets ordinances and resolutions in Michigan against locations where complete streets trainings have occurred. It certainly appears that these trainings are having a dramatic impact. Of the 43 policies on the map, all but 16 are within counties where trainings have occurred.
We are pleased to see such a strong correlation and commend the efforts of MDCH and all the partners involved in developing the Michigan Complete Streets Institute Training modules. The Michigan Trails and Greenways Alliance also have provided tremendous leadership in organizing local training sessions across the state the past few months. Likewise Michigan Citizen Planner offered an extensive Complete Streets Workshop Series across the state this Spring.
