Consultants to Develop Framework Plan for Downtown Ann Arbor Streets

A pair of consulting firms are working with Ann Arbor's Downtown Development Authority to create a framework to be used to make more active streetscapes.  The DDA approved a $150,000 contract for the downtown street framework plan. 

DDA board Member John Mouat says the framework will be designed so streets that face different challenges and issues can be tailored to meet their particular needs.  He says the DDA, the city, or private developers should all be able to use the framework.  Mouat says some additional civil engineering work may be done for the city to look at infrastructure under the streets.
