Re: SG-W:/ mobile homes in A2 township?



I did a little more research with A2 Township and the proposal is clearly not
consistent with the Zoning Ordinance either.  In particular, the area is not
served by public water or sewer services.  I understand that the Township and
the City of Ann Arbor have agreements on the provision of these services that
limits the extension of these services to defined areas which do not include
section 6.

Here's the relevant sections from the A2 Zoning ordinance:

R-6:  This district is intended to provide areas for development of mobile
home parks with the character of residential neighborhoods.  The district is
intended to be applied in areas designated in the general development plan
for urban residential use at a density of 4 to 6 DUs/acres, and only in
areas in which public water and sanitary sewer are available.  It is the
intent of this district that mobile homes be considered and regulated as
single-family dwellings which deserve and require locations, services, and
facilities similar to other types of residences developed at urban
densities.

R-3 density:  This district is intended to provide single family residential
areas of an urban character on lots 10,000 square feet and larger, in areas
designated in the general development plan for urban residential use at a
density of 2 to 4 DUs/acre.  The district is intended to be used only in
those areas in which public water and sanitary sewer services are available.
