Planning Group OKs Master Plan Revisions

At its May 3, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor planning commission held a public hearing and unanimously approved revisions to the city’s master plan. The commission’s bylaws require this process to take place each May. This year, no one spoke at the public hearing. The revisions include: (1) adding the recently updated Parks & Recreation Open Space (PROS) plan; and (2) adding references in the master plan’s resource information list to two studies related to the Washtenaw Avenue corridor – the Washtenaw County Access Management Plan, and the Washtenaw Avenue Corridor Redevelopment Strategy.

Commissioners also voted to add the downtown design guidelines as an additional resource document.

This brief was filed from the second-floor council chambers of city hall, 301 E. Huron St., Ann Arbor, where the planning commission meeting was held. A more detailed report will follow.
