A2 Open City Hall has two participation channels:

  • The Registered Channel: Sign in before or just after you submit your response. Either way, Community Feedback will show your response on this website.
  • The Unregistered Channel: Don't sign in and remain anonymous. Community Feedback will just share your response with Ann Arbor staff.

Note: The first time you sign in, you'll need to register (establish an account on A2 Open City Hall). Registration is free.

The City of Ann Arbor has contracted with Community Feedback to monitor responses shown on this website.

  • To prevent any single user from dominating the forum, the City of Ann Arbor restricts the number of responses any one user can post on selected topics. Registration helps Community Feedback enforce this restriction.
  • Users, staff and government leaders often want to know the neighborhood from which a response is posted. Community Feedback uses registration to show the neighborhood next to each response (not the address).
  • If a user posts a response that does not meet the City of Ann Arbor guidelines for civility, Community Feedback uses the user's email address to invite the user to resolve the issue.

Community Feedback will get your contact information. The company is under contract with the City of Ann Arbor to hold it in strict confidence per their privacy policy.

  • Since you'll see your own response on A2 Open City Hall, you'll be able to confirm that your response was posted as you intended.
  • You'll be able to change and/or delete your response as long as the topic is open.

Yes. Sign out, then set your privacy preference to be "No - just show it without my name to staff". You won't need to register.

While no authentication procedure can perfectly detect every fraudulent registration, Community Feedback is able to secure the registered channel against systematic fraud: cases where users submit enough statements with fraudulent registrations to sway the overall interpretation of the feedback.

Community Feedback is unable to secure the unregistered channel against systematic fraud, because unregistered users are anonymous.

Neither the registered nor the unregistered channel represent a certified voting system or ballot box - and that caveat is footnoted on every page of feedback. Instead, both are additional channels for feedback to government.

Users can participate on the registered channel (by signing in) or on the unregistered channel (by remaining anonymous). The City of Ann Arbor offers both channels in order to broaden participation and maximize decision makers' insights.

The registered channel enables users to assure decision makers that their feedback comes from a real person in a specific neighborhood. It also enables users to participate in a public discussion on the website, as well as manage their own response after posting it.

The unregistered channel is for users who want to provide quick feedback without registering, and/or whose privacy concerns would prevent them from participating if required to register. Because many users with valuable insights will only share them anonymously, this channel gives decision makers the option to consider those insights in their deliberations.

OpenGov is a non-partisan company whose mission is to broaden civic engagement and build public trust in government. The City of Ann Arbor has contracted with OpenGov to administer A2 Open City Hall.

Drinking Water Infrastructure

There will be watermain replacements on both Greenview Drive and South Seventh Street.  The existing mains are undersized and replacing them will improve water quality, improve hydrant coverage, and reduce maintenance of an aging main. Residents will be notified 24 hours prior to any disruption in service and a schedule will be provided closer to construction.


Stormwater Infrastructure

There will be stormwater infrastructure improvements on South Seventh Street.  Along both sides of the street, road runoff sand infiltration trenches will be installed.  The City will also replace any catch basins and storm sewer pipe in disrepair.

Infiltration Trench

Infilration trenches manage runoff from paved areas and other impervious surfaces. Their function is to provide ground water recharge and prevent stormwater discharge from flooding the street.

Street Widths

S. Seventh Street is currently wider than a typical neighborhood street. City staff is evaluating options to reduce the pavement width for motorists, which could do the following:

  • Reduce the amount of paved area and stormwater run-off,
  • Reduce the length of crossing distance for pedestrians, creating a more comfortable and safer walking environment (reduced crossing distance means pedestrians will spend less time in a roadway area),
  • Reduce the width of driving lanes to lead drivers to reduce their speeds.

Curb Bump Outs

Curb bump outs are one example of how to reduce lane widths for motorists and reduce impervious pavement (see below). Within the project limits, crosswalks will be installed at intersections and bump outs will be included at each installation. These bump outs will be designed similarly to those already existing on S. Seventh Street and would occupy areas where parking is already illegal (within 15 feet from intersections). The City is also considering mid-block curb bump outs.


All Ages and Abilities (A3)

The City’s new transportation plan emphasizes changing how the City designs and implements its bicycle network. The shift to designing for All Ages and Abilities (A3) will provide access to the widest range of bicyclists that it is financially feasible. This network will be designed to provide travel that is:

  • Safe
  • Comfortable
  • Equitable

The plan has an All Ages and Abilities (A3) tool boxes for different street types. S. Seventh Street is a local street, identified as an A3 route in the plan. Because the northern part of S. Seventh has vehicular traffic volumes that reach the upper limit for local streets, a minor street treatment could also be considered. See table below.

Street Type

Local Streets (25 mph or less AND less than 3,000 vehicles/day)

Minor Streets (25-30 mph AND less than 10,000 vehicles/day)

Features

Shared vehicle and bicycle environment with features to slow drivers and promote bicycling.

This design style, if combined with parking removal, would allow for a narrower street and provide the opportunity to further reduce impervious surface.

Formally designated bicycle environment that would include striped bike lanes.

This design style would provide more separation between vehicles and cyclists but would require a wider street surface.

Below are what the types of bicycle space options could look like and their tradeoffs.

  • Buffered, Separated and Designated Bike Lane options will require removal of some on-street parking along S. Seventh Street to implement.
  • Shared Bike Space with Motorists could be implemented without removal of some on-street parking along S. Seventh Street; however, if on-street parking removal is paired with this treatment, stormwater management and a greater impact to slowing vehicle speeds can be achieved.
