DDA OKs $100K for Sidewalks, Trees

Tree maintenance and sidewalk repairs in downtown Ann Arbor will get $100,000 of support from the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority as a result of board action taken at its July 2, 2014 meeting.

The work will include repairs like displaced bricks and uneven sidewalk flags, as well as pruning of trees.

The money to pay for the work will be drawn from tax increment finance (TIF) revenue, which the DDA is authorized to capture under state statue.

The project was recommended by the DDA’s operations committee. The board vote was unanimous.

This brief was filed from the DDA offices, 150 S. Fifth Ave., Suite 301, where the DDA board holds its meetings.
