Ann Arbor City Council Preview, July 16, 2018

The site for the proposed Cottages at Barton Green. The site plan is the subject of PH-6 and DB-1.

Today is the last #a2council meeting before the August 7th Primary Election. Gentle reader, this means you can expect some fireworks in Council Chambers. Here's the agenda. There are a couple of items on the agenda that are particularly spicy. PH-2/B-2 and PH-3/B-3 are part of the ZORO (Zoning Ordinance ReOrganization) project, which is essentially a cleaning up of the zoning code. This is the second reading of these ordinance changes.

PH-1/B-1 is the second reading of an ordinance change that would modify how fraternities and sororities are defined in the zoning code. When this ordinance has been before council previously there has been a lot of pushback from members of the fraternity and sorority community.

The final spicy item on the agenda is PH-6/DB-1 the site plan and wetland usage permit for the Cottages at Barton Green development. This would be a 225 unit apartment community with 716 bedrooms.

In other parts of the agenda there are a couple of rezonings of township islands. The consent agenda is pretty light with only 10 items. The only street closing is for student move in on Aug. 29th - Aug. 31st.

Gentle reader, what are you most looking forward to at tonight's #a2council meeting? We are well into campaign season so there may be some political fireworks. 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.
