Concerned about sharing your contact information with OpenGov?
A2 Open City Hall has two
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
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.

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.

What is your preference for the proposed bike lane(s) on Barton Drive between Brede and Pontiac? (marked in yellow on the map above)
Zone 1 - Brede to Pontiac (marked in blue on the map above): This area is identified in the city's Capital Improvement Plan and has a sidewalk prioritization rating of mid/high. Per city code, adjacent property owners be responsible for the full cost of the installation.
Zone 2 - M-14 to 221 Barton (marked in pink on the map above): Staff has received a petition from residents in this area requesting sidewalk installation. Per city code, adjacent property owners would be responsible for the full cost of the installation.
Zone 3 - Barton and Starwick (marked in yellow on the map above): This sidewalk is proposed as part of an intersection reconfiguration, requested by Safe Routes to School (SRTS). Per city code, adjacent property owners would be responsible for the full cost of the installation.
Zone 4 - 221 Barton to Brede (marked in green): This would only be considered if Zone 2 is also installed; subject to technical feasibility. This sidewalk is along the rear of the lot, the City does not typically assess adjacent property owners to pay for sidewalk installation in those instances.
