May 21, 2021 – The City of Midland invites residents to share their input on the current state of transportation and mobility options in the community – and also challenges them to use transportation methods outside their normal patterns as part of the City Modern master planning process.
In the online survey, respondents are asked to share how they currently travel around the community, what their transportation preferences and limitations are, and where improvements to the City’s current system can be made. The survey can be accessed at www.cityofmidlandmi.gov/mobilitysurvey and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete. Responses should be submitted by Sunday, June 6 at midnight.
Results will be shared with the Midland Planning Commission, City staff, and the general public and will be used during the City Modern master planning process to ensure that adequate transportation and mobility options are available for all ages, abilities, incomes, locations, and user preferences and to help better understand how property development both impacts and is impacted by transportation and mobility in our community.
Residents who do not have internet access or cannot complete the survey online may submit feedback and suggestions to Director of Planning & Community Development Grant Murschel at 989-837-3374 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To coincide with this survey, the City invites residents to participate in a mobility challenge to better understand how the current transportation network serves all users. During the final weeks of May and the early days of June, residents are encouraged to park their personal vehicles and travel around the city by walking, biking, taking an e-scooter, using Dial-A-Ride, or pursuing a different mode of transportation than they normally use. While using a different mode of transportation, residents are encouraged to write down their observations and share them when completing the Transportation & Mobility Survey.
