#a2council preview for April 16, 2018

Gentle readers, tonight's #a2council meeting promises to be a scorcher. You really have to watch it. If you would like to watch it with some cool folks IRL, we are hosting a viewing party at 7pm at Workantile.

The hottest item on tonight's agenda is the sale of the old Y Lot. At the April 2nd Ann Arbor City Council meeting a motion to purchase the Y Lot failed. You can read a bit about the background of the Y Lot sale here. Councilmember Westphal introduced a motion to reconsider the purchase of the Y Lot at that April 2 meeting, which brings us to where we are today. One unfortunate aspect of this situation is that since this item, DC-1, is just a resolution, there will be no public hearing.

There are also two ordinance first readings, C-1 and C-2, which update Ann Arbor's zoning code. You can read more about the City's Zoning Ordnance Reorganization Project (ZORO) here. Because these are first readings, there will not be public hearings.

Elsewhere in the agenda there is the rezoning of a township island (C-3) and in the consent agenda there are items to appoint a fire chief, an interim assessor, and an interim police chief. It'll probably be a pretty long and exciting meeting. If you can't join us at Workantile, make sure you tune in tonight at 7 to watch CTN's live stream and follow the blow-by-blow action on #a2council hashtag on Twitter.
