L1520724rcyan blues builders-Defend the Ann Arbor 7, S. Fifth Ave. historic streetscape under threat of demolition

the parade is over,

except for this guy , who continues to prance around zoning , in front of the city planning commission, time after time..

no means no, don’t you get it?

got history?no i don’t think so Ann Arbor Builders!
he, who would demolish 7 of 11 historic properties on the edge of an historic architectural district, and a quickly changing downtown Ann Arbor.

defend the Ann Arbor 7, on s. Fifth ave.
stop the demolition of our history and our place in time and the neighborhhod,
this is not Columbus , Ohio

BAD NEWS is,the Planning Commission did recommend approval of this
project last night with 3 dissensions. Since it meets the minimum
standards of the zoning law, the staff and the commisioners felt they
could not oppose it. It is a real dog. It has bedrooms that are
individually leased, that have cooking areas (is this a kitchen they
asked? Do we have a definition of a kitchen?) almost making them
efficiencies. However, they get away with calling them bedrooms, and six
of them together make a unit. You only need to provide 1 1/2 parking
spaces per UNIT, so they will have 36 spaces, highly visible from the
street, with something like 140 tenants.

now , there is only one more fight left,

w/ the city council, who have the final say.
