Proposal 1 Ann Arbor City Charter Amendment Tax For Community Climate Action

Shall the Charter be amended to authorize a tax up to 1 mills to fund community climate action for 2023 through 2043, which will raise in the first year of levy the estimated revenue of $6,800,000? In accordance with State law, a portion of the millage may be subject to capture by the Ann Arbor Downtown Development Authority and the Washtenaw County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority.

Authorized uses include: year-round composting; expanded residential/multifamily recycling; community and rooftop solar programs; rental and low-income household energy programs; bicycle, pedestrian and transit infrastructure; neighborhood resource centers; electric vehicle infrastructure; and tree plantings.

Persons with special needs as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act should contact their local Clerk's Office for assistance.

Same precinct locations, new numbers

All city voters should also be aware that the precincts have been renumbered, now in consistent chronological order (1-53). So while you may still be assigned the same precinct and polling location, the number may be slightly different. This new naming convention is a best practice and replaces the previous system of numbering each ward separately. For example, Ward 2, Precinct 1 is now Ward 2, Precinct 13, following the first twelve precincts in Ward 1.

Sound confusing? Not to worry — these changes will be provided to each registered voter on their new voter ID card being mailed to all city voters in mid-July. Still have questions? Contact the city clerk's office at 734.794.6140 or [email protected].
