Title
Resolution Approving the Lease and Related Renewals Between the City of Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan For City-Owned Property Behind 926 Mary Street ($4,120.00 annually) (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
The City has leased the property behind the Mary Street Polling Place, 926 Mary Street, to the University of Michigan since 1979. The University uses the property as a student parking lot for its tenants at Fletcher Hall. The current lease agreement, dated January 28, 2014, provides a lease term through December 31, 2019 and gives the University the option to renew for two successive, one-year lease periods upon 90-days' notice to the City. The University has notified the City of its intent to exercise its renewal option for the lease period between January 1, 2020 to December 31, 2020. Because the resolution that authorized the current lease (R-14-030) was limited to five years, City Council approval is sought to extend the lease beyond such five-year term in accordance with the lease's terms.

This lease agreement is in line with other parking lot leases the City has negotiated recently with the University.

Approval of this resolution is recommended.
