Looking out on the streets of Ferndale on a typical day, you’ll see plenty of cars, but you’ll also see a lot of pedestrians negotiating the crosswalks and cyclists using the roadways as well. I believe that Ferndale is already a leader in walkability and bikeability, but I also believe we can do more to make Ferndale streets welcoming and usable for everyone!
That’s why I worked to pass the Ferndale Complete Streets Ordinance in 2010. My recommendation for Ferndale City Council consideration can be found here.
If you would like to learn more about what makes a street a Complete Street, here is a presentation I gave on this topic to the Michigan Municipal League in Lansing in 2011.
