Ferndale Moves! is a new initiative focused on making Ferndale an even better place to walk, bike and take transit. As part of the project, the Community and Economic Development Department has created ferndalemoves.com in order to centralize the City's current planning efforts on the project, and to participate in more transparent, accessible and interactive planning. The website provides a landing page for all walking, biking, complete streets and transit projects initiated by Ferndale City government.
Currently the preliminary network plan, which details all of the proposed road changes, is open for public input. Residents can view recommendations, make comments and also interact with suggestions left by others via an interactive map.
CED welcomes all thoughts and comments on the ferndalemoves.com website. Specific feedback on the website can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org, messages are checked twice weekly.

In May of 2013, the Ferndale Downtown Development Authority and the City of Ferndale partnered to improve the infrastructure and unify the streetscape and ambiance of West Nine Mile in downtown Ferndale.Over the course of the summer, much of the antiquated water main was updated, the road was reduced in width to accommodate on-street parking, and bike sharrows were added to promote and accomodate multiple modes of transportation. Park benches, trees, and new green spaces were also installed to provide a buffer between traffic and the newly constructed wider sidewalks. The new streetscape has helped the rest of West 9 Mile sync perfectly running east to Woodward.
