Title Review of Proposed R4C/R2A Recommendations

In 2009, the Ann Arbor City Council appointed a citizen advisory committee to identify potential zoning changes to address community concerns about redevelopment in the R4C and R2A zoning districts. The R4C/R2A Zoning District Advisory Committee (AC) met through early 2012 soliciting input from a broad selection of stakeholders, gathering facts, and identifying potential solutions. In May 2012, Planning Staff wrote the R4C/R2A Zoning District Study Advisory Committee Recommendation Report (Attachment A), containing recommendations attributed to the R4C/R2A committee’s deliberations.

In June 2012, Planning Staff presented the AC report to City Council. The Planning Commission’s Ordinance Revisions Committee (ORC) reviewed the report and made a report of its own to deliver to City Council (Attachment A).

After discussing the recommendations made in the May 2012 AC report, the ORC examined other possible planning tools and expanded the scope of the committee goals beyond what the AC had considered. The ORC made its own recommendations in an April 2013 report to Council. In summary, the ORC confirmed some of the AC report’s recommendations and made additional changes of its own.

Because the ORC report recommended changes not endorsed by the AC and because it was brought to the attention of City Council that some of the recommendations in the AC report of May 2012 did not reflect votes taken by the AC, a reconstituted R4C/R2A committee was appointed on July 1, 2013 and met for four meetings: August 14, August 28, September 11, and September 25, 2013.

This is the review of those recommendations, prepared by the R4C/R2A Zoning District Advisory Committee (AC) .
