Elizabeth Nelson's City Council Blog

I write a City Council newsletter with my summary of agenda items coming before City Council.

Sign up to receive it first via email, or read it here later on this blog. I also post my perspectives on how issues were resolved, and charts of how Council voted at each meeting. I post Ward 4 road construction news under "Construction", and other news that affects Ward 4 residents under the category "Ward 4 News". News that affects all city residents is posted under "City News".

Apply to Serve on the Ann Arbor Center of the City Task Force

The Ann Arbor City Council is accepting applications for the Center of the City Task Force, created to engage citizens in visioning, long-term planning, immediate and intermittent uses and building toward the final vision for the Center of the City on the Ann Arbor District Library Downtown Branch block.​

As defined by a resident-initiated City Charter amendment adopted by voters during the Nov. 6, 2018, election, the Center of the City is the city-owned public land bounded by Fifth Avenue, William, Division and Liberty Streets. This section of downtown, the library block, is home to a variety of stakeholders: residential property owners/tenants; small businesses; large businesses and organizations; city-owned properties; and two downtown historic districts.

In order to provide recommendations in collaboration with these numerous stakeholders, the Center of the City Task Force will facilitate a process that will encourage public participation, resulting in a written recommendation to City Council.

The Ann Arbor City Council is accepting applications for the Center of the City Task Force until 5 p.m. on Friday, May 31, 2019. Councilmembers Grand and Hayner will review applications and will present Center of the City Task Force member nominations at the June 17, 2019, City Council meeting with appointments to be finalized at the July 1, 2019, City Council meeting.
