The City of Birmingham is in the initial stages of preparing a multi-modal transportation plan for the City.  The plan will help to improve the balance between all modes of transportation, with the goal of making foot, bike and transit travel easier and safer.  To help guide the project, a survey has been prepared that will be used to help identify travel patterns, preferred types of improvements and desired project outcomes.  The survey takes approximately ten to fifteen minutes to complete.  You do not have to be a resident of Birmingham to take the survey. People who work and recreate in the City are also encouraged to provide input. To access the survey please click on the following web link:

Alternatively, paper versions of the survey may be obtained from at the City Clerk’s office (located on the first floor) and the Planning Department (located on the second floor) at City Hall or the Baldwin Public Library.  Completed paper surveys may be returned to the same locations or faxed to 734-668-8820 .

The web survey will close Sunday, November 4th at 11:00 p.m.

The results of the survey will be posted on the project webpage and be presented to the City Commission on November 12th.

Future public input opportunities for the project include:  a Visioning Workshop on Thursday, January 17th from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m., and two Preliminary Plan Open House sessions on Thursday, February 28th from 3:00 to 5:00 and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m.  The Visioning Workshop and the Preliminary Plan Open Houses will be held at the Baldwin Public Library.
