Ann Arbor City Council Preview: April 3, 2023


Renderings of the proposed N. Maple Apartments. 

Gentle readers, there is a new #a2Council blog in town. Make sure to check out Michelle Hughes' There's also a preview of tomorrow's Planning Commission meeting there too! 

Anyway, here's the agenda for tonight's meeting

The evening kicks off with a brief, 4-item consent agenda. CA-1 looks fun: a street closure for a soapbox derby on April 16. 

There are three public hearings on the agenda tonight. PH-1/B-1 is on the new ordinance requiring residential carbon monoxide monitors. PH-2/B-2 is for the North Maple Apartments township island annexation and PUD zoning. PH-3/DB-2 is for the site plan for the apartment. The proposal is for a 4-story building with a mix of studios, 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. There will be 79 units, 12 of which will be subsidized to be affordable at 60% AMI. This sounds great, but as always, I'd love to see this a little bigger. Also, it would be great if these types of buildings didn't have to come through PUDs. 

On to the resolutions. DB-1 is a resolution asking the Administrator to engage with the state legislature and Michigan Public Service Commission to advance energy equity and resilience. DC-1 is a resolution to support pollinator habitat in Ann Arbor. DC-2 is a resolution to contract with Davey Tree to help with winter storm cleanup. DS-1 is a resolution to publish a notice of intent to issue water revenue bonds to the tune of $45m. 

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
