Title

An Ordinance to Amend Sections 5.15 (Table 5-15), 5.17.3, 5.17.5 (Table 5:17-5), and Section 5.37.2 of Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code) of Title V of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Permitted Use Table, Parkland Donations, Dimensional Standards Table, Front Lot Line) (Ordinance No. ORD-19-26)

Memorandum

Amendments are proposed to the Unified Development Code (UDC) to correct three errors and make one amendment.  The errors and corrections are:

 

1.                     Correct Section 5.15 Table 5-15. The cell for medical marijuana processor use in the M1A district is blank.  It should indicate P for permitted. This table is also proposed to be separated into three tables, one for primary uses, one for accessory uses, and one for temporary uses. 

2.                     Correct Section 5.17.3.A.  The paragraph incorrectly says lot area excludes parkland.  It should state that lot area includes land donated or to be donated to the City for public park purposes which is acceptable to the City.

3.                     Correct Section 5.17.5, Table 5:17-5. The cell for maximum front setback in the R5 district requires none.  It should require 50 feet and reference foot note F. A redundant footnote is also removed, and all references to footnotes in the table are correspondingly updated. 

4.                     Amend the definition of front lot line in Section 5.37.2 to clarify that the word street, for purposes of defining a front lot line, does not include highways or alleys.  Lot lines adjacent to I-94, U.S. 23, M-14 or alleys will be considered side or rear lot lines. 

 

Staff identified the three proposed UDC corrections over the past year.  There have been no permits or site plans submitted or approved using the incorrect standards.  The Planning Commission held a public hearing and recommended approval of these corrections and amendment on May 7, 2019.
