Regional Road Update and Proposal 1 Overview April 22 in Traverse City


TRAVERSE CITY, MI – The state of the region’s roads and the transportation funding proposal on the May ballot in Michigan will both be discussed at an April 22 meeting in Traverse City. The meeting will run from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Hagerty Center, 715 East Front Street. The meeting is being sponsored by Networks Northwest and the Traverse City Area Transportation and Land Use Study (TC-TALUS).

The meeting will include presentations by Networks Northwest Regional Planner Mike Woods and Bob Schneider of the Citizens Research Council of Michigan. Woods will share information on the state of the region’s roads including road condition, road safety, and upcoming construction. Schneider will provide a neutral, non-partisan overview of Michigan’s Proposal 1, a sales tax and road funding measure set to appear on the May 5 ballot. There will be opportunities for question and answer after the presentation.

There is no cost to attend the event, but RSVPs are requested at or by calling Angie Lemon at 231-929-5077.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
