In 2009, the Ann Arbor Discover Downtown adopted new guidelines for zoning. Now, a public evaluation of those rules is underway.
From the City's website:
The goal of the A2D2 Evaluation Project is to have a constructive discussion about what works in the A2D2 zoning, what does not, and possible changes. Through Friday, Aug. 16, constituents will be asked what issues should be addressed in the evaluation. After that time, options for changes to the A2D2 zoning will be evaluated and revised for final presentation to the City Council in October 2013.
As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, there were many concerns expressed at Tuesday night's community forum on the program.
