The City of Chelsea is working with the Washtenaw Area Transportation Study, also known as WATS, on a study to help improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety.  

City of Ypsilanti

Ypsilanti’s city council will discuss a construction project Tuesday tonight that’s expected to improve pedestrian and bicyclist safety.  

The Ann Arbor Public Schools will be among those putting forth a ballot question in May.  The Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority will put a question before voters in August.  There are ways to get involved beyond voting.  Those are a few of the issues WEMU's David Fair and CivCity Initiative executive director Mary Morgan cover in this weeks edition of Civic Matters.
