A2: Fuller Road Station

The Huron Valley Group of the Sierra Club has issued a press release urging the city of Ann Arbor to make a full disclosure of its plans for Fuller Road Station, a proposed city/University of Michigan parking structure, bus depot and possible train station located at the city’s Fuller Park near the UM medical complex. The release includes documents obtained from a Freedom of Information Act request, indicating that some people have proposed exploring retail uses on that site.

From the release: ”It is time for the city administration to stop playing shell games, for the city council to force a full disclosure of what the plans are for the Fuller Park site, and for the city council to follow the mandate of City Charter Section 14.3(b), which requires a vote of Ann Arbor electors for the sale of any part of City property acquired for parkland uses, regardless of what any temporary current parkland use may be.” Nancy Shiffler, chair of the Huron Valley Group, addressed the UM board of regents on this topic at the board’s Jan. 19, 2012 meeting. [Source]
