Title
Resolution to Accept and Appropriate Michigan Strategic Funds and Approve Certified Local Government Grant Agreement for the City of Ann Arbor Old Fourth Ward Historic District Reconnaissance-Level Survey Update ($45,000.00) (8 Votes Required)
Memorandum
The State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO) has awarded the City of Ann Arbor a Certified Local Government Grant to perform a survey update of historic resources in the Old Fourth Ward Historic District. This is a reimbursement grant program to allow the City to hire a qualified consultant to complete the survey. Project work shall be completed by September 30, 2024. Funding is provided in part by the National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior, through the Michigan Strategic Fund. While this item was previously approved by the City Council, the resolution submitted by Planning Services did not contain the required language to appropriate the funds. This amended resolution corrects this omission.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: The Certified Local Government Grant program has no matching fund requirement. The Historic Preservation Coordinator shall manage the grant.

If approved, this resolution would (1) formally accept the grant award, (2) authorize the City Administrator to sign the grant agreement and (3) appropriate these funds when received to the Major Grants Program Fund.
