Ann Arbor City Council Preview: March 2nd, 2020

Gentle readers, tonight is the first March meeting of #a2council. Here's the agenda. Of note, it will be the first meeting since the council fired Administrator Howard Lazarus. DC-4 appoints CFO Tom Crawford interim administrator.

The evening kicks off with a modest 13 item consent agenda. Highlights are street closings for the Monroe Street Fair, Fool Moon, and FestiFools.

There are two public hearings on the docket this evening. PH-1/DB-1 is approval of the site plan for the Satndard, a new building going in at 405 S Main, which is currently a DTE Building. This is coming to council with unanimous support from planning commission. My understanding is that this is a by-right development so I don't expect too much oposion. PH-2/DB-2 is a routine township island rezoning in Ann Arbor.

Elsewhere, DC-5 is a resolution regarding the Police Chief. It basically acknowledges the Norris Report and says the Chief "acknowledges and affirms those fundamental police values in his response letter; and that Chief Cox demonstrates an understanding of his need to provide clear communication of those fundamental values and is committed to that practice."

Well gentle reader, what do you think about the plan to fire Administrator Lazarus? What agenda items are you most interested in? Make sure you tune into the action tonight at 7 on CTN. As always, you can follow the #a2council hashtag on twitter too.
