A2 Open City Hall is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in A2 Open City Hall is voluntary. The responses in this record are not necessarily representative of the whole population, nor do they reflect the opinions of any government agency or elected officials.

Your answers will NOT be saved

This is the form that was used to collect responses. It's here so you can try it and see how it worked when the topic was open.

The topic is now closed, and anything you enter into this form will not be saved.

Sign in and be yourself

Sign in and let others know who you are and what you think. You can sign in now or after you submit your response. You'll be able to read your response on this website and change it if you change your mind.

A2 Open City Hall has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Community Feedback will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Community Feedback will just share your response with Ann Arbor staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on A2 Open City Hall). Registration is free.

The City of Ann Arbor has contracted with Community Feedback to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the City of Ann Arbor restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Community Feedback enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Community Feedback uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet the City of Ann Arbor guidelines for civility, Community Feedback uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Community Feedback will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the City of Ann Arbor to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on A2 Open City Hall, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Community Feedback is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Community Feedback is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The City of Ann Arbor offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

BIKE BOXES are being considered as part of this project.

What’s a bike box?
A bike box is a designated area at the front of a traffic lane at a signalized intersection that provides bicyclists with a safe and visible way to get ahead of queuing traffic during the red signal phase. 

Why install bike boxes? 
•    Increases visibility of bicyclists and improves their safety. 
•    Helps bicyclists get in left turn position during the red signal.
•    Groups bicyclists together to clear an intersection quickly, minimizing impediment to transit or other traffic.
•    Enhances the active transportation environment.


If you would like more information on this topic, or have outstanding questions about the purpose of bike boxes or their application on South Industrial Hwy, please provide the information below:

GREEN COLORED PAVEMENT for bike lanes is planned as part of this project.

Colored pavement will be implemented along the length of the bike lanes between Stadium and Stimson to increase visibility of the lanes, in the conflict zone at the southern end of the project, and in the bicycle box at the intersection with Eisenhower Parkway.

 Why use green pavement pigment?

•    Promotes the multi-modal nature of a corridor (e.g., a street with dedicated space for people driving and people biking).
•    Makes it easier to see the space dedicated for people biking and improves their safety.
•    Raises motorist and bicyclist awareness to potential areas of conflict.  
•    Increases bicyclist comfort by providing clearly marked space to ride 
•    Increases the likelihood that a person driving will yield to a person biking. 
•    Reinforces priority to bicyclists in green colored area. 
•    Enhances the active transportation environment.

DESIGN CONCEPT

Vehicle Lane Narrowing

City Council has acted to make Ann Arbor a Vision Zero city with a target of zero traffic fatalities by 2025.  This goal is a guiding principal of the transportation plan update.  Managing vehicle travel speed significantly decreases crash severity.  Reductions in driving speed has exponential benefit to the humans involved in crashes.

Vehicle speeds are influenced by how fast a driver feels they can safely travel. Narrower travel lanes require greater caution to maintain the lane and avoid conflicts and may lead to lower vehicle speeds and improved safety.

An easy to implement tool for reducing travel speeds is to reduce the width of the driving lane.  Vehicle lane narrowing will be implemented along the full length of this project corridor.

Vehicle Lane Reallocation

City Council has set policy directing staff to design Complete Streets and reduce the number of vehicle miles traveled by 50%.  City staff enact these policies by designing streets that provide transportation options for everyone.  Vehicle lane narrowing and vehicle lane reallocation achieves these goals by adjusting existing street width to provide space for all travel types on the corridor.

This project includes a limited section of vehicle lane removal just south of Stimson Street. This design creates continuous bike lanes along the corridor and extends the two-way left turn lane.
