Rezoning Washtenaw/East Stadium and Plymouth Corridors​ to TC1 district

Jump to Resources and Materials


City Council asked Planning Commission to create a new zoning district for transit corridors, and asked for recommendations on which areas in the city may be appropriate for the new district in Resolution R-20-439 (approved November 16, 2020).  The new district, TC1 (Transit Corridor), was adopted by  Ordinance no. ORD-21-19 (approved 7/6/21, effective 7/25/21). The first area to be rezoned was in the South State and East/West Eisenhower area, approved in April 2022. Then, the West Stadium/North Maple Corridor was rezoned by City Council Ordinance ORD-22-16 (approved 11/15/22, effective 11/27/22).

Since that time, the City Council has requested several amendments to the TC1 Zoning District (Resolution R-22-390, approved 12/5/22) and has directed the prioritization of rezoning the Plymouth and Washtenaw Corridors (Resolution R-23-186, approved 6/5/23).​

About the TC1 Transit Corridor District 

The TC1 (Transit Corridor) district is intended along existing transit corridors with regular fixed service provided by AAATA primarily on established commercial and office sites. It was created to facilitate, encourage, and support redevelopment and infill development to realize mixed use projects and achieve affordable housing, enable more housing choices, more sustainable forms of development, with reduced resource and energy needs.
