They represent a broad range of businesses and institutions along Woodward Avenue where the streetcar will operate. The group will voluntarily take part in monthly meetings.

Officials with the M-1 Rail say the council’s role is to help identify ways to minimize the impact of construction to businesses, provide input during construction to help M-1 Rail reduce disruptions to business activities, and offer guidance to M-1 Rail as to how the completed streetcar line and its assets can provide the maximum benefit to businesses and their customers.
