Library Green Supporters Hope For Progress On Park After City Council Sets Size

Apr 8, 2014

Members of the Library Green Conservancy are hopeful Ann Arbor City Council actions will help people work together to develop a park above the city’s underground parking structure.  Last month council approved 65-hundred to 12-thousand square feet to be used as a park, but that’s now been revised to approximately 12-thousand square feet.

Library Green Conservancy member Will Hathaway thinks everyone wants the same goal, a quality park above the underground parking structure.


Council failed to pass a resolution to delay listing the remainder of the space above the Library Lane Parking structure for sale in an effort to get public feedback on using the entire area for a park.  This effort to get more community feedback could return to council.
