Ever drive around town and see those ugly signs trying to get you to buy billboard space? Well these signs may be ugly, but the thought behind them is good – and SEMCOG can help. Consider including SEMCOG traffic count data in your marketing and redevelopment strategies.
The City of Dearborn Heights is doing just that. They are using SEMCOG data to assist a property owner in leasing out a vacant building. According to Ronald Amen, Director of Community and Economic Development, “The owner wants to use the information as a marketing tool and I want to see the long vacant building put back into use again.”
The SEMCOG Traffic Counts Database System is easy to use and packed full of most (if not all) major roads in the region.
So, think creatively like Dearborn Heights about how SEMCOG data can help your community’s efforts.
Just avoid the ugly sign.
