Resolution to Approve the Fuller Park Parking Lot Land Lease with the University of Michigan (8 Votes Required)
Attached for your review is a resolution to approve a land lease agreement with the University of Michigan to lease the three parking lots at Fuller Park.

The existing lease expires on August 31, 2021. The term of the new lease agreement is proposed to be for one year, with an option to renew the lease administratively for four additional one-year periods. The proposed new lease includes some notable changes from the expiring one:
