The city is beginning a public engagement process to assist in
developing a shared understanding and language about affordable housing, and
its relationship to jobs, development, growth and planning, by creating a
framework for discussing or evaluating these issues. Specifically, issues
will be discussed in the context of redevelopment of two key publicly owned
sites in downtown Ann Arbor, as part of a larger context of housing and
affordability in our city: vacant city-owned lots at 350 S. Fifth Ave. and 415
W. Washington St.
The city is hosting five community discussions regarding the redevelopment of vacant lots at 350 S. Fifth Ave. and 415 W. Washington St. These honest and interactive conversations will be part of a larger context of housing and affordability discussions in Ann Arbor.
All people who live, work and/or spend significant time in Ann Arbor are invited to attend one of the below open-house style sessions. Weekend, day and evening options have been included to expand feedback opportunities from all.
