Berkley passes Complete Streets resolution

At last nights Detroit Light Rail public workshop, we crossed paths with Steve Baker, a Berkley City Commissioner.

His good news?

The city of Berkley passed a Complete Streets resolution just last week.

“This is not a requirement for us to rip up existing roads and start over,” Baker said. “A Complete Streets policy, and our upcoming Master Plan amendments, is a win-win for Berkley. This better positions Berkley to compete for scarce funding resources and grants, and it helps to further enhance the quality of life for our residents, businesses, and visitors.”

The Michigan Complete Streets Coalition web site also has the resolution and the very nice, localized presentation on Complete Streets.

Congratulations, Berkley!
