City Council Update

Highlights from City Council Meeting, March 19, 2018

Dogs on leash at condo commons – City Council waived the second reading and approved a change to ordinance 10.2, which now prohibits dogs from running at large on condominium common areas.

Rental agreement – City Council agreed to rent the City-owned home at 315 Griswold located just north of Mill Race Village to the Living, Learning Enrichment Center for the monthly rate of $1,300.

Master Plan to be reviewed – The City Council will review recommended changes to the Master Plan. The proposed changes relate to new development east of Griswold, south of Cady. – an area known as Foundry Flask. Key elements include removing the “density limits” and replacing it with a “form-based” approach so development is compatible visually and functionally with surrounding land uses; allowing some flexibility in building height, and requiring a certain percentage of first-floor commercial space in key locations. City Council said it would discuss these changes at a meeting on March 21 with the DDA and Planning Commission.

SMART Specialized Services contract approved – City Council approved a contract for fiscal year 2018 that allows the Northville Parks and Recreation Dept. to receive $2,488 in funding from SMART to offset the operational cost of providing transportation services to seniors and individuals with disabilities.
