Ann Arbor City Council Preview: October 16, 2023


Gentle readers, tonight is another spooktacular edition of #a2Council. Here's the agenda

The evening kicks off with a ghoulish, 13-item consent agenda. There's just one road closure, CA-1, for the Turkey Trot. CA-7 is traffic calming for Grandview from Jackson to Dexter. You love to see it. 

There are two public hearings on the agenda tonight. PH-1/DB-1 is for a township island annexation at  3701 - 3713 Riverside Drive. PH-2/DS-1 is accepting a grant to help with opioid harm reduction. 

There is one ordinance first reading tonight. C-1 is for a township island annexation for 2282 and 2290 Traver Rd. The city is getting 5.23 acres of vacant public land. 

On to the resolutions. DB-2 is a resolution to approve early voting sites for 2024. DB-3 is a resolution to permanently relocate several election precincts: Precinct 4-32 from the Mary Street Polling Place to the University of Michigan Coliseum, Precincts 4-33 and 3-24 from the U-M Coliseum and Tappan Middle School to the Ann Arbor Senior Center beginning with the 2024 Presidential Primary Election. DC-1 and DC-2 are commission appointments. 

DC-3 is a resolution to measure the impact of the recently adopted home energy rating disclosure. DC-4 is a resolution to encourage connections across US 23 and to make sure there are comfortable walking and biking facilities. Nice. DC-5 is a resolution to appoint Patrick Maguire interim Police Chief. DC-6 is a resolution for he evaluation of the integration of Home Energy Score assessments in residential inspection processes. 

DC-7 is a resolution to ask MDOT not to block off access to the western portion of Barton Nature Area. This has been a whole big thing. You can find out more on this reddit thread. And finally DC-8 is a resolution to inform next steps for selling the Kline Lot, the parking lot on Ashley and William. 

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
