Title
An Ordinance to Amend Section 5:166 of Chapter 59, Off-Street Parking, Title V, of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor to Allow Temporary Parking of Motor Vehicles in the Front Open Space as Part of a Special Event (Ordinance No. ORD-12-37)
Memorandum
Approval of this ordinance will provide flexibility for City Council to allow temporary front open space parking for special events other than University of Michigan football games and the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair.

The proposed amendment to Chapter 59, Off-Street Parking, would allow City Council to set “special event dates” for temporary front open space parking on private property to address parking demand for events such as hockey games in Michigan Stadium. It would also eliminate the requirement for obtaining permits for front open space parking during the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair.

The City Planning Commission recommended approval of this ordinance amendment at its meeting of November 7, 2012.
