Ann Arbor Area Community News
Students at the University of Michigan have formed another group devoted to engaging the city in student issues. Students Promoting Active Neighborhoods (SPAN) is an off-shoot of the new Michigan Progressive Party. This organization initially will focus on the student neighborhood in the 3rd Ward (currently represented on City Council by Jean Carlberg (D) and Leigh Greden (D)), nearly the only downtown-adjacent area of the city not represented by a neighborhood or commercial association.
SPAN will hold a meeting this Saturday, February 18th at 3pm at the Pi Beta Phi house, 836 Tappan. Additionally, SPAN members will be canvassing Wednesday, meeting at East Quad residence hall. High on the SPAN list of issues is the placement of emergency phones in off-campus areas. Interested parties can contact Kate Mitroka, kfbmATumichDOTedu.
