Ann Arbor City Council Voting Chart for the Meeting of June 20, 2023
Here’s the agenda.
There are 5 public hearings on the docket this evening. PH-1/B-1 is the second reading of an ordinance to allow the city to donate abandoned bikes on city property to local non-profits. PH-2/B-2 is the second reading of the ordinance removing the requirement that landlords give tenants information on their rights as tenants and how to vote.

PH-4/B-4 and PH-5/DB-1 are both on the proposed student housing PUD for 721 S Forest. It replaces an old mid-rise with an energy efficient high-rise, and is a couple blocks from central campus in a student-heavy neighborhood.
There are three ordinance first readings tonight. C-1 is the first reading of an ordinance that modifies the conditional zoning Beekman on Broadway project at 1140 Broadway. C-2 is the first reading of a new ordinance that is aimed at stopping the Ann Arbor Police Department from conducting pretextual traffic stops. C-3 is the first reading of an ordinance that would allow people to legally put free items on their curb.
