Title

An Ordinance to Amend Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code), Rezoning of 8.48 Acres from R1A (Single-Family Dwelling District) to PL (Public Land District), Ruthven Nature Area Addition, 3301 Geddes Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 9 Yeas and 0 Nays) (ORD-21-03)

Memorandum

This ordinance will rezone a 8.48-acre addition to Ruthven Nature Area. The land was recently purchased from the property owner with support from the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission.  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 January 5, 2021, recommended approval of the request.
