Ann Arbor City Council Preview: July 17, 2023

Gentle reader, it's #a2Council night in Ann Arbor. Here's the agenda

The evening kicks off with at modest, 13-item consent agenda. In a huge surprise to dedicated council watchers, the street closing items are at the end of the consent agenda. What is even happening? Anyway, there are 4 street closures coming up for a vote. CA-10 is for the 2023 football season, CA-11 is for student move-in, CA-12 is for the NTI Block Party, and CA-13 is for the UA Block Party. Also, we've got CA-9, the sale of the Y-Lot, 350 S 5th, to the Ann Arbor Housing Development Corporation. 

There are two public hearings on the agenda this evening. PH-1/B-1 is the second reading of an ordinance to rezone phase 3 of the Lowertown project. This is technically a rezoning from C1A/R to C1A/R, but what's really happening is that some of the conditions of the zoning are changing. PH-2/DB-1 is an amendment to the project at the old DTE Gasworks at 1140 Broadway. 

There are two ordinance first readings on the docket tonight. C-1 is for an ordnance to authorize a the process of annexing a batch of township islands. C-2 is on an ordinance to amend the rules around the Transportation Commission. 

Rounding out the agenda, there are two resolutions. DC-1 is  a resolution to appoint Derek Mehraban to the Independent Community Police Oversight Commission. DC-2 is a resolution to recognize Garrett’s Space as a Civic Nonprofit Organization. 

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
