The public cannot offer input, but observation may be interesting. From the Ann Arbor News:

The Ann Arbor City Council will discuss downtown zoning in a workshop with the Planning Commission and the Downtown Development Authority’s board members.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. Monday at the DTE Center conference room, 425 S. Main St.

The city is considering changes to downtown zoning to encourage residential development.

Susan Pollay, executive director of the DDA, said one option is to leave the current zoning in place and create an overlay of zoning that would have additional criteria. Or Pollay said the city could completely rezone.

The Residential Downtown Task Force released a report earlier this year that suggested the city review its zoning to make it easier for residential development.

There will be no public commentary.
