The Ann Arbor planning commission recommended approval of the annexation for 2925 Devonshire Road, which is one of several Ann Arbor Township “islands” within the city. The action occurred at the commission’s Jan. 15, 2013 meeting, when commissioners also recommended zoning the 0.66-acre site as R1A (single-family dwelling district). The zoning and annexation require Ann Arbor city council approval.
The property – owned by Keith Kocher and Sara Saberi – is vacant, but within a residential neighborhood south of Geddes.

A storm sewer improvement charge of $3,477 is also required.
