Title
Resolution Establishing Ann Arbor Industrial Development District 2021-001 - Five Lots including 3874 Research Park Drive
Memorandum
The attached resolution provides City Council with action to establish an Industrial Development District (IDD) as requested by Sartorius BioAnalytical Instruments, Inc. for 3874 Research Park Drive and four adjacent vacant lots.

State law, and the adopted City of Ann Arbor Tax Abatement Policy Guidelines & Criteria, both provide that that an IDD may be established after a public hearing by the City Council, which was held on January 3, 2022. Establishment of an IDD is required prior to receipt of any applications for an Industrial Facilities Exemption Certificate ("Certificate").

The property owner wishes to establish the IDD so that a Certificate may be filed for consideration by the City. Approval of this resolution would establish the IDD for 3874 Research Park and four adjacent vacant lots. Upon establishment of the IDD, the City will be responsible for responding to any future Certificate Application within a 60-day timeframe.
