Abstract

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.
