As I previously posted, the City of Troy kicked off Move Across Troy by hosting the Big Beaver Pedestrian Symposium last fall. The symposium was a "focused effort to discuss pedestrian mobility barriers that exist on Big Beaver, between Adams and Dequindre Road, and explore future solutions." I attended the late afternoon session on October 1st.
On 1/12/15, the Troy City Council held a special study meeting for an update on the project.
Click here and here to read/print the documents that were presented at this special study meeting.
According to the draft meeting minutes, "Mayor Slater summarized that the directive from City Council is to keep moving forward with the proposed meetings and seeking funding." This is great news and I'm hopeful that this project will continue to move forward.
As an added bonus, City staff has posted the video recording of the 1/12/15 Troy City Council special study meeting to YouTube. At the bottom of this post is the video. (The meeting actually starts shortly after the 2 minute mark of the video.)
