Ann Arbor City Council Preview: August 16, 2021


Gentle readers, it's council night in Ann Arbor. Here's your agenda. Here's the Ann Arbor AF podcast episode about this council agenda. 

The evening kicks off with a moderate, 18-item consent agenda. Road closures are back. CA-2, CA-3, and CA-4 are all street closures. 

There are two public hearings on the docket this evening. PH-1/B-1 is for the fur ban ordinance. PH-2/B-2 is on the conversion therapy ban. 

There are 7 resolutions on the agenda this evening. One of the big items is DC-4. This is a resolution to approve the recommendations of the Council of the Commons regarding activation of the Library Lot. Check out Scott Trudeau's article on this. They also took a deep dive into this in the A2AF episode. But basically, this resolution would direct the administrator to develop programing for the Library Lot, among other things. . Personally, it feel like perhaps the multiple committees that are in charge of the Library Lot could handle this work load. There's a lot to get into here, and this could be the evening's spicy chili. 

As always, gentle reader, I am probably forgetting some very important items here. What agenda items are you most looking forward to seeing. I am guessing that tonight will be another late night around the virtual council table. Hopefully we will see you there. The CTN stream starts at 7 pm. Make sure you follow the action on the #a2council hashtag.
