Resolution Directing the Ann Arbor City Planning Commission to Review Specific D1 Zoning
Whereas, Ann Arbor City Council passed Enactment No: R-13-078 on March 18, 2013, a Resolution to Direct the Ann Arbor Planning Commission to Review D1/D2 Zoning and Make Recommendations to Amend the Current D1 Zoning Regulations, as amended (the "Resolution");

Whereas, City Council wishes to provide more specific requests to the Planning Commission to better facilitate their consideration;
RESOLVED, That City Council requests the City Planning Commission to specifically address these issues: (i) whether D1 zoning is appropriately located on the north side of Huron Street between Division and S. State and the south side of William Street between S. Main and Fourth Avenue; (ii) whether the D1 residential FAR premiums effectively encourage a diverse downtown population; and (iii) consider a parcel on the south side of Ann St. adjacent to north of city hall that is currently zoned D1 to be rezoned to the appropriate zoning for this neighborhood; and
RESOLVED, That City Council requests that Planning Commission complete its review and report to the City Council by October 1, 2013.
