The City is considering bringing back the Healthy Streets program in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic by providing additional space for social distancing for those who walk or bike In addition to being responsive to the circumstances surrounding the pandemic, these measures also align with the A2Zero Carbon Neutrality Plan and the Moving Towards Vision Zero draft Transportation Plan – both of which call for more opportunities for people to walk and bike.
2021 Healthy Streets survey
The City of Ann Arbor has just completed a survey to gather input regarding the possibility of bringing back the Healthy Streets program for 2021 to help people keep social distance due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as well as providing increased opportunities to walk or bike. The public's input, both for and against, will be taken into account with other factors such as safety, connectivity, equity, feasibility, cost and street jurisdiction or ownership in the decision-making process.
The complete public input results are available, as well as a draft copy of Engineering Design plans for the proposed 2021 Healthy Streets deployments. NOTE: These are draft plans. City Council approval is required for implementation.
