Land Annex on Miller Road Moves Ahead

Ann Arbor planning commissioners have recommended approval of an annexation and zoning request for 2640 Miller Road, on the city’s northwest side. The action took place at the commission’s Aug. 20, 2013 meeting.

Owned by Robert Rayer, the 0.39-acre is located in Scio Township, on the north side of Miller west of North Maple. The requested zoning is R1B (single-family dwelling district). Properties on the east and west sides of this lot are already zoned R1B.

A single-family home is on the property. According to a staff memo, the annexation was prompted because the site’s existing septic system has failed and the owners need to connect to city services. The 2013 improvement charges are $19,062, but the charges would be set whenever the city water and sewer mains are connected and the services become active.

The request will be forwarded to the city council for consideration. If the annexation is approved, the site would be located in Ward 5.

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