Resolution to Promote Effective Mitigation of Traffic Impacts Resulting from Site Re-engineering by Entities Exempt from City Jurisdiction
Memorandum
The City of Ann Arbor is the host to several institutional property owners that have significant operations on their properties, including but not limited to the federal government, the University of Michigan, and the Ann Arbor Public Schools System.
