Ann Arbor City Council Preview: March 6, 2023


Gentle reader, it's #A2Council night in Ann Arbor. Here's the agenda

The meeting kicks off with a modest, 12-item consent agenda. We've got street closures for the Burns Park Run (CA-1) and for restaurants and retail (CA-2). The city is also going to purchase a bike lane sweeper (CA-9)! 

There are three pubic hearings on the docket this evening. All of them have to do with the Village of Ann Arbor development on the city's northside. PH-1/B-1 is the rezoning, PH-2/DB-1 is the site plan, and PH-3/DB-2 is the brownfield plan. This is a pretty big rezoning (~68 acres) of a former township island to R4A. I'd love to see it a little denser, but more housing in Ann Arbor is really important. 

There are three ordinance first readings on the agenda as well. C-1 is on revisions to the solid waste code. C-2 is on rezoning 3.13 acres of a township island on North Maple to PUD. C-3  is on changes to the city's risk fund rules. I think it get's rid of the insurance commission?

Moving on, there are 5 more resolutions on the agenda. DC-1 appoints Brooks Curits to the Environmental Commission. DC-2 is the postponed street closure for the Monroe Street Fair. DC-3 amends the agreement with Recycle Ann Arbor for multifamily pickup. DC-4 is a reallocation of extra money from the Human Services Fund. DC-5 is a resolution asking the Administrator to engage with the legislature about energy infrastructure reliability. 

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
