Ann Arbor Adds More Greenbelt Land

At its March 5, 2012 meeting, the Ann Arbor city council authorized the use of $82,576 from its greenbelt millage to acquire development rights to the Newton Farm property – 58.85 acres in Ann Arbor Township. The city’s contribution will be paired with an equal amount from Ann Arbor Township and matched with a federal farm and ranchland protection program grant of $158,676 for a deal worth a total of $323,828.
