Ann Arbor sites approved for development

. January 1, 2020.

Further addressing the demand for affordable residential housing, the Ann Arbor City Council passed resolutions instructing the Ann Arbor Housing Commission to work on developing affordable housing at nine different city-owned properties. As a result, two specific properties on Catherine St. and N Ashley St. received a green light to immediately begin the development process. The passing of the resolutions was not without debate — an effort by Councilman Jeff Hayner to introduce an amendment requiring the developments to be carbon-neutral was discussed but not adopted. The Ann Arbor City Council declared a climate emergency at its November 4 meeting.
