Report Appendix (8MB pdf)
City Council created the North Main – Huron River Vision Task Force to develop a vision to create/complete/enhance pedestrian and bike connection from downtown Ann Arbor to Bandemer Park and Huron River Drive; increase public access to the river-side amenities of existing parks in the North Main–Huron River corridor; ease traffic congestion at Main and Depot streets at certain times of day; and recommend use of the MichCon property at Broadway.
The task force will also recommend to Council the best use of 721 N. Main. The task force will provide its recommendation for 721 N. Main to Council by Dec. 31, 2012, and submit its report to Council by July 31, 2013. A separate webpage has been set up for the 721 N. Main component of the North Main - Huron River corridor Project.
