Ann Arbor Area Community News
The Ann Arbor Planning Commission last night rejected the school district’s request that the new high school site be annexed into the city, a requirement for receiving water and sewer service, and also rejected the school’s site plan. Whether either of these actions is meaningful is another question. The Ann Arbor News notes,
The [site plan] rejection has no impact on the new school since school district projects are exempt from municipal zoning and building codes. The Ann Arbor School District submitted the plan as a courtesy.
In 1994, the city and township came up with an agreement that the township will not contest annexation of the school land. Planning Commissioner Eric Lipson and school Trustee Nelson said that agreement automatically annexes the land once requested by the school district.
