Downtown Northville streets will stay closed to cars permanently

An idea born out of helping businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic is now a permanent fixture in downtown Northville.

The closures of Main Street and Center Street in the heart of the city will remain closed to motor vehicle traffic permanently. The decision by the city at its Aug. 1 meeting comes less than two months after the council voted to extend the closures downtown council through early November.

After reviewing more information and taking in more details, the city council addressed the street closures issue again, making the decision to keep the roads closed to cars, allowing pedestrians and diners to continue using the street.

Supporters of the closures said they were helping attract and retain younger residents and visitors, something they said the city should continue to do.
