Connected Communities | Complete Streets

A vision of a more connected community, through infrastructure, individuals and organizations, is a fundamental piece of enhancing the quality of life in the Traverse City area. There are many ways to achieve this vision and designing complete streets is part of the solution.

The Grand Vision clearly supports increased mobility & placemaking opportunities. Adopting complete streets, both through our policies and our practices, is a meaningful way to put Grand Vision into action.

Notes from Past Meetings

Since passing statewide legislation in 2010, Michigan has taken a national lead in establishing local complete street ordinances and resolutions. There are now over 60 Michigan communities with policies on the books that support, if not require, new and re-constructed infrastructure be built inclusive of all users.

If interested, please attend one of the upcoming events or contact Julie Clark ( for information in how you can become more connected to this coalition of people, organizations and businesses.
