Title
Resolution Authorizing that the Ann Arbor DDA Develop an Implementation Plan to Redevelop Downtown City-Owned Parcels
Memorandum
Ann Arbor City Council authorized the establishment of the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority in 1982 with the mission to undertake public improvements that have the greatest impact in strengthening the downtown area and attracting new private investments. The DDA accomplished a great deal, and in 2003 Ann Arbor City Council authorized an amendment to the DDA Development Plan that extended the DDA’s TIF capture until 2033 and set forward new strategies to accomplish the DDA’s mission. One of these key strategies is the pursuit of development partnerships in which the DDA set forward that it would strive to encourage downtown development that realizes community goals and objectives.
The DDA is uniquely structured to develop an overarching strategy to develop City-owned downtown properties, to facilitate the process of writing/distributing effective RFPs and RFQs to solicit developer proposals, and to facilitate bringing to City Council proposed development projects on City-owned properties.
