Title
An Ordinance to Amend Sections 5.15, 5.16 and 5.17 of Chapter 55 (Unified Development Code) of Title V of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (TC1 Uses, Auto-related and TC1 Development Use Specific Standards, Transit Corridor Additional Standards) (ORD-23-25)
Memorandum
Several amendments are proposed to permit limited auto-related uses in the TC1 (Transit Corridor) district and improve and clarify the additional standards applicable to development in the TC1 district. General background information and a summary of each amendment is provided below.

* Background: By City Council Resolution R-22-390, the Planning Commission evaluated and recommended amendments to the TC1 district to incorporate limited automobile-related uses and address constraints of existing narrow rights-of-way. The attached ordinance proposes to incorporate Automobiles, Motorcycles, Recreation Vehicles, Equipment (Sales and Rental) and Automobiles, Trucks and Construction Equipment Repair as special exception uses in the TC1 district. Addressing constraints of existing narrow rights-of-way will be provided separate when available.
* Amendments: The proposed amendments respond to Resolution R-22-390 as well as include work to clarify how the additional development standards apply to various building typologies. Following Planning Commission's recommendation to approve these amendments, staff further reworked how these additional standards are presented in the UDC and propose moving them from Section 5.16 Use Specific Standards to Section 5.17 Area, Height and Placement Regulations because they are in fact area, height and placement regulations rather than use specific standards.
