Ann Arbor City Council Voting Chart for the Meeting of March 20, 2023

Here’s the agenda for tonight’s meeting.

The evening kicks off with a decent, 20-item consent agenda. The first two items are street closures. CA-1 is for MUSIC Matters Spring Fest on April 14th. CA-2 is for the Glacier Area Memorial Day Parade on May 29th. There are also some housing items on the consent agenda. CA-7 is appropriating $3.5M in American Rescue Plan funds to purchase 8 duplexes in the Liberty/Virginia for affordable housing. CA-8 is transferring 121 Catherine, the 4th and Catherine Surface Lot, to the Ann Arbor Housing Development Corporation for a future affordable housing development there. CA-8 is the tax exemption for that project. CA-9 is a payment in lieu of taxes (PILOT) for the 121 Catherine project. 

There are two public hearings on the agenda tonight. PH-1/B-1 is on amendments to the city’s solid waste ordinance. PH-2/B-2 is on an ordinance to amend the city’s risk fund to make payments an administrative action instead of a political one by removing sitting council members from the board.

There are two ordinance first readings on the agenda tonight. C-1 is the rezoning of the old Road Commission Building, 415 W. Washington, from public land to PUD. The plan is to replace the decaying road commission building with a mid-rise residential structure which would develop that section of the treeline trail, clean up the pollution there, and provide better stormwater management. C-2 is to amend the city’s housing code to require existing buildings with gas appliances and/or attached garages to have a carbon monoxide detector.

On to the resolutions. DC-1 is to appoint Kate Laramie to the Greenbelt Advisory Board. DC-2 is to request the public art commission put together a plan to redesign the city flag for the bicentennial next year.

DC-3 is to approve a general services agreement between Waste Management and Ann Arbor for solid waste franchise collection. DC-4 is a resolution asking the Administrator to provide council with a monthly risk fund claims review, since council members will no longer be directly part of the process to distribute settlement funds. DB-1 is a resolution asking the Administrator to engage with the state legislature and Public Services Commission to advance energy equity and resilience.
