City Of Ypsilanti Non-Motorized Advisory Committee (NMAC)
The City of Ypsilanti Non-Motorized Advisory Committee (NMAC), working through the Planning Commission, will work to enact recommendations of the City of Ypsilanti Non-Motorized Plan so as to offer residents increased non-motorized transportation and recreation options as well as having the Plan creating economic and quality of life incentives to the City.
The Committee meets the first Thursday of every month, 7pm, at the downtown Ypsilanti District Library in one of the two meeting rooms that facility has. Anyone interested in making Ypsilanti a better place to bicycle and walk is invited to attend NMAC meetings.

Also, it was announced on November 18th, 2014 that the League of American Bicyclists have awarded the City of Ypsilanti an “Honorable Mention” for it’s Bike Friendly Community application. The Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC - http://bikeleague.org/community) program provides a roadmap to improve conditions for bicycling and the guidance to make a City’s distinct vision for a better, bikeable community a reality.
The League noted that Ypsilanti came out very strong in many categories but work was still needed in other areas. For a summary of Ypsilanti’s scorecard see the attached flyer. The City’s Non-Motorized Advisory Committee will be working to strengthen its next entry so as to hope to be awarded a “Bronze” BFC status.
