Let’s fix our sidewalks, Traverse City

The Traverse City City Commission will be considering a proposal this coming Monday, April 16th to approve roughly $1 million to repair all of the sidewalks in the City rated as poor/very poor (map below) during the 2018 and 2019 construction seasons.

This proposal did not receive the necessary 5 votes to pass when it was discussed on April 2nd and will be before commissioners again this Monday. Again, it needs 5 affirmative votes to pass.

How you can help:

  • Email City Commissioners voicing your support. Make it personal. Explain why this matters to you, your family, your neighbors. Email all Commissioners with this one address: CityCommissioners@traversecitymi.gov
  • Attend the meeting Monday, April 16th at 7P at the Governmental Center (400 Boardman Ave.). Show up and voice your support. RSVP HERE.

Because sidewalks are more than just pavement, of course.
