Detroit Transit Options for Growth

The Detroit Department of Transportation will hold a set of four public meetings about the Detroit Transit Options for Growth Study at different locations in and around the city. The closest of these meeting to the Warrendale neighborhood will be on Saturday, July 28 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center (15801 Michigan Ave. in Dearborn).

The purpose of these meetings is to:
  • Define the options to be elevated during the study;
  • Identify the social, economic and environmental impacts to be evaluated; and
  • Allow members of the public to offer their comments and suggestions.
Each meeting will begin with an hour-long open house providing members of the public with an opportunity to discuss the issues with project staff and view displays to help them understand the proposed options. A brief presentation will then be given that will focus on the scoping process, project purpose and alternatives currently under consideration. After this presentation, members of the public will have an opportunity to comment and offer suggestions.

The same information will be presented at each of the meetings. Information about the day, time and location of the other three public meetings is available here.
