Stop the Rush for Demo of Harley Clarke? Mon. July 23 7:00 City Council-Come show your support

The Demolition cost will be more than the $400,000 offered by the Dunes group.
If the Supporters who want to raise fund to renovate and operate the building give the $15,000 a year the city said it cost to maintain the property -let them have time to show they create a place on the lakefront for all-and NOT funded by the taxpayers.- Unlike the $56,000,000 Robert Crown Project.

NU Parking Lot-Support the Agreement and the Neighbors

~~Over the past 6 weeks, Northwestern, the neighbors, and the city worked to arrive at a mutually agreeable solution for the parking lot lighting and alley. I would like to thank Alan Anderson, NU Neighborhood Relations, and John D’Angelo, NU Facilities Management, for working so well with the neighbors.  Northwestern has been easy to work with during the process, they have been receptive to neighbor concerns and willing to change some design points. The neighbors have been willing to compromise to help NU meet what they need to accomplish.

"In most places, sidewalk snow-clearing is left to individual homeowners. In Ann Arbor, one neighborhood decided to pool its resources instead."

The SnowBuddy tractor, driven and funded by volunteers, clears all 12 miles of sidewalk of the Water Hill neighborhood of Ann Arbor, Michigan. (Paul Tinkerhess)

Saw the above in a tweet from City Manager Wally Bobkiewicz this morning.  Thought it worth sharing.
