Ann Arbor DDA Calls Special Meeting

The Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority board has called a special meeting for noon Friday, May 20, 2011 at the DDA offices at 150 S. Fifth Ave. At the board’s May 2 meeting, it had put off voting on a new contract with the city of Ann Arbor under which the DDA manages the city’s public parking system.

The board had been expected to vote on the measure at that meeting, but postponed it amid questions about the administration of the city’s ordinance on distribution of DDA TIF capture. [Chronicle coverage: "DDA Delays Parking Vote Amid TIF Questions"]

The delay in settling the parking contract has led to a delay in the Ann Arbor city council’s willingness to approve its fiscal 2012 budget.
