  • This will go to City Council for final approval.

  • After final approval, public utilities under the street (sanitary, water, storm mains) will also be transferred to the University of Michigan.

POSTPONED: Staff recommendations for amendments to chapter 55 of the Unified Development Code (UDC) to emphasize multimodal transit.

This item was postponed to the December 19, 2023 meeting. (Legistar)
