ReImagine Washtenaw Public Workshops Announced
ReImagine Washtenaw will hold four identical public workshops on May 28, 29, 30 and 31. The public may attend any of these four workshops. Stakeholder input and feedback is being sought as part of the HUD-funded corridor right-of-way study. Participants will see a 30 minute presentation on Complete Streets and then visit a series of stations providing input on safe pedestrian crossings, adding bike lanes, transit stops, and sidewalks to the corridor, and providing their vision on the future of mass transit along the corridor. Here are the workshop dates/times/locations: Tues. May 28th, 6-8 pm at Washtenaw Co. Service Center, 4135 Wash. Ave. LRC Room A Wed. May 29th, 8-10 am at Washtenaw Co. Service Center, 4135 Wash.

The Vision for the Washtenaw Avenue Corridor
A corridor that supports a high quality of life with walkable shopping options, housing choices, efficient transit service, great public spaces, bike paths, and access to educational, cultural and employment centers.
Implementation is already underway with improvements at Arbor Hills shopping center and at the US -23 interchange. You’re already seeing the vision take shape, and there’s more to come!
