Few Michigan jurisdictions have adopted Complete Streets policies, though many see potential benefits

June 2015

This report presents the opinions of Michigan local government leaders regarding “Complete Streets” policies, which encourage local governments to take into account all road users—including pedestrians, bicyclists and transit passengers of all ages and abilities, as well as trucks, buses and automobiles—during the planning, design, and construction of public streets. The findings in this report are based on a statewide survey of local government leaders in the Fall 2014 wave of the Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS), including a supplementary survey of county road commissions and departments.
