Title

Resolution to Approve Changes to Traffic Patterns and Parking on Certain City Streets for the 2019 University of Michigan Student Move-In Program from August 28 - August 30, 2019

A restriction on peddling licenses and sidewalk occupancy permits within a one-block radius of the housing units is also included in the resolution.

 

The University will maintain the required emergency traffic lanes and will staff barricades to ensure the safety and security of individuals moving into university owned housing.
