Ann Arbor City Council Preview: December 5, 2022


It's beginning to look a lot like #a2Council. Here's the agenda

The evening kicks off with a brief, 8-item consent agenda. Of note: CA-1, a MOU betwixt city and county for a new trail and underpass connecting Barton Nature Area and Bandemere Park. You really love to see this. I've probably been crossing here for the better part of three decades. It's wonderful to see the city and county working to build up a robust trail system. 

There are no public hearings nor ordinance readings on the agenda tonight. So, on to the resolutions! DC-1 is a resolution on appointments to the Washtenaw Regional Resource Management Authority. DC-2 is approval of new council rules. DC-3 is 2023 Council Committee Assignments. DC-4 sets the #a2Council meeting calendar for next year. DC-5 is a resolution asking planning commission to look at two changes to the TC1 zone: incorporating limited automobile-related uses excluding drive throughs and gas stations and looking at some potential issues with narrow rights of way. DC-6 is a motion to suspend council rules to allow the council to reconsider the state trunkline study the conservative faction on the old council tanked in September. This is a really important step in making Ann Arbor safer by allowing the city to take control of its trunkline roads from MDOT. 

And that's all there is. Looks like a pretty modest agenda. What items are you most looking forward to seeing? Hopefully we will see you there. The CTN stream starts at 7 pm. Make sure you follow the action on the #a2Council hashtag.
