City on Track to Annex Pittsfield Site

A Pittsfield Township “island” property on the east side of Victoria Avenue – between Independence Boulevard and Robert Street – is recommended to be annexed into the city and zoned for single-family residential (R1C). The Ann Arbor planning commission made the unanimous recommendation at its Nov. 7, 2012 meeting.

The owner, Janet Max, intends to build a single-family home on the 6,628-square-foot parcel. According to a planning staff report, the site is one of a dozen remaining township islands in the area bordered by Washtenaw Avenue, Packard Road, and Platt Road.

This brief was filed from the second floor council chambers at city hall, 301 E. Huron, where the planning commission meets. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
