ANN ARBOR, MI – As Ann Arbor officials discussed the city’s future challenges this week, streets rose to the top of the list.

Specifically, they called attention to pavement conditions, with the consensus being that they’re not good enough right now.

They also talked about how to manage increasing traffic as the city grows, and encouraging more people to get around without cars.

The discussion took place Monday night, April 9, during a special work session of the City Council. The topic was “Building for Tomorrow: Infrastructure and Projects.”

City Administrator Howard Lazarus said it was the first of three planned work sessions to look toward the city’s future.
