The City will be holding three Town Hall Meetings this week for public input on the budgeting process. While a $2 million cash infusion from the DDA has mitigated some of the disaster scenarios originally predicted by the City, Ann Arbor, like every other City in Michigan, has plenty left to worry about.

The meetings will be held,
> Tuesday, April 5, 7-9 pm, Clague Middle School – Multipurpose Room, 2616 Nixon Road
> Wednesday, April 6, 7-9 pm, Tappan Middle School – Cafeteria, 2251 E. Stadium Blvd.
> Thursday, April 7, 7-9 pm, Slauson Middle School – Cafeteria, 1019 W. Washington

The Town Hall meetings will be taped and replayed on CTN over the next month, along with a previously taped 60 minute panel discussion, Sustaining the Quality of Life in Ann Arbor (now available in Real and Windows Media formats on the City’s website!).

  1. Yow – when you search google maps for a few addresses in a row, it pans between the locations! How cool is that?

    I will probably be at the Tuesday meeting (since that’s my ‘hood), pushing my, “We can increase the tax base and turn auto-centric sprawl-style locations into pleasant, walkable, transit and pedestrian-oriented areas at the same time!” agenda.

  2. Actually looking probable that I’ll be at Thursday’s budget meeting instead of tonight’s.

    I suppose it will be that much more exciting to advocate a “redevelopment for better tax base” position when I’m doing so at a meeting in the OWS.
