Resolution to Adopt the FY2023 City Council Legislative Policy Agenda


The City Council Legislative Policy Agenda is a document that serves as a statement of values for the City of Ann Arbor and provides policy guidance for city leaders when engaging with state and federal policymakers.  This year, with the guidance of Dykema and at the direction of the Council Policy Agenda Committee, the document has been reformatted to indicate high priority and medium priority legislative and administrative lobbying actions to orient staff toward specific objectives. In addition, the document still contains a full statement of values from the City and provides direction to pursue lobbying efforts in support of a wide array of issues such as LGBTQ+ rights, gun control, and climate change.


The prioritization of issues in this document will serve as the basis of performance reporting back to the Council Policy Agenda Committee and as the basis for the formal evaluation of the City’s lobbying efforts.
