What is Streets For People?
The City of Detroit is developing a Transportation Master Plan with a singular focus—to make it easier and safer for Detroiters to move around the city. To communicate that effort, the City is launching the campaign, Streets for People.
The plan seeks to knit together diverse neighborhoods, prioritize safety of the most vulnerable road users, and identify clear implementation and design strategies for roadway improvements.
Most importantly, it will be rooted in an inclusive planning process that gives a voice to the City’s residents who are most impacted by the transportation system.
This plan will be completed over the next two years by the Department of Public Works in partnership with MDOT, SEMCOG, city departments, and partner agencies.
Streets for People is rooted in five values:
Streets should be safe for all Detroiters - no more crashes, no more deaths.
EQUITY, DIGNITY, AND TRANSPARENCY
Detroiters, these are YOUR streets - help us make them work best for you.
ACCESS FOR ALL
All Detroiters should be able to easily move around the city, no matter their age or ability.
Improve access to jobs and support neighborhoods by designing better streets and mobility options.
Better mobility options can improve the health of Detroiters and reduce pollution.
Help us talk about this campaign!
What should a street have? Think about the kinds of people that live in Detroit neighborhoods or might in the future. Think about the things the streets don’t have and what they need to become safer spaces for everyone.
