Gentle readers, are you ready for tonight's episode of #a2council? Take a peep at the agenda here. The evening kicks off with a 24 item consent agenda. Some highlights: a new Greenbelt purchase (CA-3) and Scio Church traffic calming (CA-18).

There are 4 public hearings tonight. PH-1 amends the zoning code to allow temporary outdoor activities at Briarwood. PH-2 is the rezoning of a township island. PH-3 is the long awaited food truck ordinance. It would allow food trucks in all zones except for residential. PH-4 is the site plan for Bristol Ridge, 2750 Pontiac Trail.

There are a couple of other zoning and development related items on the agenda tonight. C-1 would allow front porches within setbacks. C-3 is the site plan for the Brightdawn Development at 2805 Burton. In exchange for a denser zoning, the developer has offered to build 20 units for households at or below 80% of the area median income (AMI) and 20 for households at or below 60% of the AMI for a period of 99 years. Finally there is C-4, which is a PUD for the old DTE Gasworks which was between the Amtrak Station and the Huron River. The site plan (below) includes 4 residential buildings, a holte, and commercial building. It also includes a park with pavilion and amphitheater space as well as a trial along the south side of the river.

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.
