Ann Arbor City Council Preview: February 6, 2023

It's #a2Council night in Ann Arbor. Here's the agenda. The evening kicks off with a scant, 6-item consent agenda. Items 1, 2, and 3 are all street closures. CA-5 is to accept $3 million HUD grant. 

There are 4 public hearings on the docket tonight. PH-1/B-1 is on changes to the the rules around storm water management. PH-2/B-2 is the second reading of the ordinance to establish the Robert and Erma Hayden House Historic District at 1201 Gardner Avenue. PH-3/B-3 is the second reading of the ordinance for the PUD at 530 N. Division Street. PH-4/DB-1 is on the resolution to approve the site plan for said PUD. This development seems good. I just wish it were bigger. Also, I wish such minor projects didn't need all the increased process and costs associated with a PUD. All this extra process is for just adding 3 units onto an existing quadplex. 

There are 3 ordinance first readings tonight. C-1 is an ordinance to annex ~68 acres at 1680 Dhu Varren Road, 1710 Dhu Varren Road, 2670 Pontiac Trail, 2672 Pontiac Trail, 2678 Pontiac Trail, and 2682 Pontiac Trail. This area will be zoned R4A for the somewhat confusingly named, Village of Ann Arbor development. C-2 is an ordinance to amend the city's non-discrimination ordinance to forbid discrimination based on the type of government ID being used. C-3 is an ordinance to amend the section of the city charter on tax exempt housing projects. 

On to the resolutions! DC-2 is a resolution to recommend approval of issuance of a downtown development district liquor license to Liberty Drinks, LLC. DC-3 is a resolution to update the list of participating businesses in the downtown social district. DC-4 is a resolution to recognize Temple Beth Emeth as a civic non-profit for the purpose of obtaining a charitable gaming license. 

And that's all there is. 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 or on
