Sat, Sep 8, 2018 - 10:00am to 11:30am

I am taking downtown on the road with a twice-monthly conversation hour!

This session we're going to do a "walk-and-talk". The DDA is considering several street projects on William, First, Ashley, and Huron; so we'll meet at Blake and walk in a circle, talking about the proposed changes and where you think the challenges and opportunities may be. Bring these and any other DDA questions you may have, and we'll take a mosey around downtown Ann Arbor as we talk. Kids, dogs, and folks of all ability levels welcome!
