Title

An Ordinance to Amend Section 5.15, Table 5-15 and Section 5.16.6 of Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code) of Title V of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Office District Permitted Uses, Accessory Restaurant/Bar/Food Service Use Specific Standards) (Ordinance No. ORD-19-27)

Memorandum

Amendments are proposed to the Unified Development Code to allow accessory restaurant, bar and food service use in the O district, up to 10% of the total floor area of the site or 12,000 square feet. 

 

The owner and manager of several office developments submitted a petition to allow restaurants at the largest office developments, which was postponed by the Planning Commission following a public hearing on March 18, 2019.  At its April 9, 2019 working session, the Planning Commission asked for revisions to allow restaurants in proportion to lot size throughout the O district and with similar standards as other accessory uses in other special purpose districts.  The attached ordinance was recommended for approval by the Planning Commission following a continued public hearing on June 4, 2019.
