Ann Arbor City Council Preview: April 20, 2020

Tonight is the final #a2council meeting of April. Here's the agenda.

The evening kicks off with the administrator's presentation of the budget. Then a short, 10 item Consent Agenda. Don't let that fool you though, you know councilmembers are going to pull items off left and right! I am most excited about CA-7 and CA-8. These are are pre-entitlement resolutions for affordable housing at 415 W Washington and 350 S Fifth (Y Lot), respectively. Great to see these affordable housing developments going forward. CA-10 is also really important. It's a resolution adopting the A2Zero Carbon Neutrality Plan.

There are three public hearings on the docket tonight. PH-1/B-1 is for an amendment of the city's non-discrimination ordinance. PH-2/B-2 is the MSGCU Rezoning (2151 West Stadium) changing 0.6 acres from C2B (Business Service District) to C3 (Fringe Commercial District). PH-3/DB-1 is approval of the site plan for 2151 West Stadium.

C-1 is the first reading of an ordinance that "is to align the unit income target goals of the DDA Housing Fund with the City of Ann Arbor’s Affordable Housing goals as 60% of Area Median Income (AMI) and to clarify that the DDA Housing Fund can be used for plans, studies and processes that support the development of affordable in the downtown that includes 60% AMI households within a range of incomes." Sounds good to me.

Make sure you tune in tonight at 7 and follow #a2council on twitter for all the action.
