    No response.
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.

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.

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.

OpenGov is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. The City of Ann Arbor has contracted with OpenGov to administer A2 Open City Hall.

Draft concepts for bicycle improvements along N. Seventh (Huron to Miller) have been prepared. Concepts range in impact to existing parking and availability of dedicated bicycle space. Review the concepts described below.  NOTE: Draft concepts are subject to change pending additional engineering analysis, public input, stakeholder feedback (including MDOT) and other considerations.  The implementation timeframe for the selected improvement will depend on its complexity, cost, and required approvals.

  • Does not require MDOT approval as shown;
  • Opportunity to extend bike lanes to intersection may exist. See notes for concept 3 and 4 related to lane drop;
  • Near-term implementation timeframe.

CONCEPT 2
