Ann Arbor Area Community News
Tonight at City Council’s bi-weekly meeting, the city’s elected representatives will deal with two well-publicized issues with particular relevance to students. The first is a second public hearing of the lease signing ordinance. The second is a resolution beginning implementation of the Calthorpe recommendations, postponed from the February 21 meeting.
UPDATE: The lease ordinance passed unanimously, with a 90-day no show/lease clause.
In related urban development news, Kingsley Lane and Metro 202 are both public hearings on the City’s agenda tonight. Word has also been going around that Councilmember Bob Johnson (D-1st) is working on a proposal for design guidelines for new construction, one of the key suggestions of the Calthorpe recommendations.
In more mundane but potentially important matters, Mayor Hieftje makes a proposal about renewable energy portfolio standards for utilities, the city will amend its employment agreement with City Attorney, Stephen Postema, and a number of local environmental issues receive attention.
