When was the lawsuit filed? Tuesday, April 9, 2019
Who is the defendant? The City of Ann Arbor
Who is the plaintiff? Tom Stulberg as an individual and an association called Ann Arbor Neighbors For Responsible Development, Inc.
What is the structure of this association? A board of director controlled non-profit corporation, providing protection for the individual members.
Who are the board members? Tom Stulberg, Laura Strowe, and Mary Underwood.
Who can be a member of the association? Anyone who resides or owns property in LowerTown, roughly bounded by the river on the south, west, and east and by Barton Drive and U of M's north campus to the north.
What does it cost to be a member? It's free, and will stay that way.
How do I become a member? Send your name, address, and email address to Tom, Laura, or Mary.
If I already supported my neighborhood by writing a letter, speaking, or donating money months ago, am I automatically a member? No, please officially join now.
What if I live outside the neighborhood, but want to support this neighborhood association? We closed our GoFundMe, which paid for our legal fees.
How do I contribute to the GoFundMe? Go to www.GoFundMe.com/Ann-Arbor-Responsible-Development. Any amount, no matter how small, will show your support.
What is the status of the development? The development was approved as one parcel then split into three. Construction has begun on the first parcel, which is apartments surrounding a parking structure. Sewers have also been installed under the future roadways. Footings for the apartment building that will surround the parking have been started too.
Does the construction mean nothing can be changed on the site? Because it was split into three lots, the second and third lots which are not under construction are not "vested" in their rezoning. The association will present it's input for developing the site in compliance to the master plan.
