Sidewalk Gap Prioritization

In November 2020, voters approved a new millage ("TAX FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF NEW SIDEWALKS") to fund construction of sidewalk gap filling projects, with expected revenues of $1.3 million/year.


At the Jan 11, 2021 Council work session, the first agenda topic was "New Sidewalk Prioritization"


As discussed in the presentation, Ann Arbor currently has 436 miles of existing public sidewalk, with an additional 144 miles of sidewalk gaps (where a gap is defined by "all locations in the public right of way adjacent to a street that lack sidewalks"). Revenue from the new sidewalk millage is expected to be $1.3 million/year, and City staff have established a ranking system to prioritize sidewalk gap projects.


The City has put together an interactive "dashboard" to view existing sidewalk gaps, and the ranking/prioritization:

The dashboard shows that 1.28 miles of sidewalk gaps are scheduled to be filled in 2021. The presentation gives a list of expected sidewalk gap projects planned for 2021 and 2020:
