Title
Resolution to Approve Changes to Traffic Patterns and Parking on Certain City Streets for the 2020 University of Michigan Student Move-In Program from August 24 - August 30, 2020
Memorandum
The attached resolution is to approve a request from the University of Michigan to change traffic patterns and parking on certain City streets from Monday, August 24 at 6:00 A.M. through Sunday, August 30, 2020 at 11:00 P.M. to assist the University Student Move In Program to proceed in an efficient and orderly manner. In an effort to minimize the anticipated congestion in the City caused by the returning student population, the University has requested the changes at the indicated dates and times to allow University housed students to move into their respective residence halls.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the timeline for this program has been extended to seven days. This is to account for and to allow additional physical distancing and de-densifying during the move-in process. A certain number of residents will be assigned a time slot for each day to help accomplish this task.

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.
