Title

Resolution to Establish Six 30-Minute Limited Parking Spots at Dewey (West of Packard)

Body

Whereas, The City of Ann Arbor supports sustainable practices and use of non-motorized transportation;

 

Whereas, Commercial activities within walking distance of residential neighborhoods can reduce our reliance on motorized transportation;

 

Whereas, The City of Ann Arbor currently incentivizes “mixed use development” so that commercial activities can exist within walking distance of the residents who would use them;

 

Whereas, Some small areas of commercial activities already exist within walking distance of the residents who would use them and the success of those businesses is consistent with the City’s sustainability goals;

 

Whereas, The intersection of Packard and Dewey is a small area of commercial activity within walking distance of a residential neighborhood;

 

Whereas, The commercial area around Packard and Dewey is reliant at least partially on a customer base of “through traffic” travelling by car and in need of short-term parking; and

 

Whereas, The City of Ann Arbor has previously established 30 minute limited parking on Second Street, to address short-term parking needs in an area of commercial activities within walking distance of a residential neighborhood;

 

RESOLVED, That the City of Ann Arbor will establish six 30-minute limited parking spots at Dewey (west of Packard) to address parking challenges in an area of commercial activities within walking distance of a residential neighborhood.
