Title

An Ordinance to Amend Section 5.17.4 of Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code) of Title V of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Mixed Use Zoning District Dimensions) (Ordinance No. ORD-19-28)

Memorandum

An amendment is proposed to the Unified Development Code to correct an error and clarify the standards in the mixed use zoning districts. 

 

In Section 5.17.4, Table 5:17-4, the cell for maximum front required setback in the C3 district indicates no dimension and references footnotes B, C and G.  This is incorrect.  It should indicate 25 feet and reference footnote A, based on previously adopted standards.  Also, the cells for maximum front required setback in the C1, C1B, and C2B districts incorrectly omit reference to footnote A.  Redundant and duplicate footnote references are removed and some standards from the footnotes are moved to the table for clarity and efficiency. 

 

This amendment was included in the same staff report to Planning Commission with an amendment to Section 5.18.6 Premiums.  Following a public hearing on June 4, 2019, the Planning Commission recommended approval of only the correction and clarification of Section 5.17.5, Table 5:17-4 Mixed Use Zoning District Dimensions.  The proposed amendment to the premium section was postponed so it could be further discussed and revised, and more feedback could be provided.
