Current 618 S. Main Proposal Clarified

In an article that reviewed a range of Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority issues, we erroneously characterized a current proposal from Dan Ketelaar for support from the DDA for his 618 S. Main project – because our description was based on an earlier version of the proposal, not the more recent version that was discussed at some meetings the article covered.

The current proposal totals just the $1.3 million that is mentioned in the article as coming after the project’s completion – from part of the taxes the DDA would ordinarily capture on the additional value of the built project. The initial, upfront grant request described in the article is no longer a part of the proposal.

We acknowledge the mistake here and have corrected the original article.
