Ann Arbor City Council Meeting Summaries

from Council Member Elizabeth Nelson

Accessible from A2COUNCIL.com and A2ELNEL.com/A2COUNCIL

For each City Council meeting, I provide links to the agenda on the City's Legistar website, CTN's YouTube video of the meeting, and to my newsletters and voting charts. I write summaries of agenda items, along with Legistar links, articles I've written (highlighted purple), and articles published on MLive. Look for highlighted text to find votes on development, affordable housing, and the City's Sustainability and Innovations department.
