Rezoning for Car Dealership Denied

A rezoning request for 2271 S. State St. that would have allowed the owner to sell cars on the parcel has been denied by the Ann Arbor city council. The action took place at its July 1, 2013 meeting.

The council was asked to give initial approval to a rezoning of 2271 South State St. from M1 (limited industrial district) to M1A (limited light industrial district). The city planning commission vote on the recommendation was taken at its May 21, 2013 meeting. That vote came out 1-8, with only Eric Mahler supporting it. So the planning commission’s recommendation was for denial.

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