Title

An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code), Rezoning of 16.0 Acres from R4A With Conditions (Multiple-Family Dwelling District) to PL (Public Land District), Buttonbush Nature Area, 2601 Dhu Varren Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 8 Yeas and 0 Nays) (Ordinance No. ORD-20-07)

Memorandum

This ordinance will rezone a new 16-acre nature area, Buttonbush Nature Area. Approximately 6 acres of the land was donated by Toll MI VI Limited Partnerships as part of their North Oaks of Ann Arbor development, and 10 acres was purchased by the Parks and Recreation Service Unit.  Only an ordinance to amend the UDC and its Zoning Map can change the zoning designation of any land, including land purchased or accepted by the City.  The PL zoning designation is intended for publicly owned land used for public purposes. 

 

The proposed zoning is consistent and coordinates with the adjacent zoning, the existing land use and the surrounding land uses, the City's Master Plan and policies.  The City Planning Commission, at its meeting of December 3, 2019, recommended approval of the request.
