Ann Arbor City Council Preview: December 2, 2019

Gentle readers, it's the most wonderful time of year. That's right, it's time for the first December meeting of #a2council. Here's the agenda.

The evening kicks off with a reasonable 11 item consent agenda. The biggest item here is probably CA-7, a contract with Emterra Services for Recycling.

There are three public hearings tonight. PH-1/B-1 is on an ordinance to amend the city's fees around going out of Business Permits. The hearings for PH-2/DB-1 and PH-3/DB-2 are probably the most interesting. These are to approve the site plans for 212 S. State and 616 E Washington, together which would approve a 19-story building behind the Michigan Theater. This building uses an affordable housing premium to exceed the normal height limit in the D1 zone. I hope this project goes through.

Elsewhere in the agenda, there is DC-5, a resolution regarding the future of the Center of the City/Library Lot. Interestingly, this directs the Administrator to undertake several specific actions, even though the Center of the City Task Force is still compiling their report regarding their outreach efforts. This will likely unearth strong feelings about the Center of The City/Library Lot.

Gentle readers, what agenda items are you most interested in? Make sure you tune in to the action tonight 7:00 on CTN and follow along with the #a2council hashtag on twitter.
