Yes city government watchers, there will be a big old battle tonight over the unnecessary, poorly planned, and hideously placed proposed 25 story student housing complex at 601 Forest.
You know where this site stands on it, the question here is who REALLY runs Ann Arbor, the citizens and the city government or the developers. Developer Dan Ketelaar, who lives WAY UP in the Leelanau peninsula, or about 4 hours from where this mess would be built says he'll stomp his feet, pee his pants and sue the city if he doesn't get his way (no mention of what order that would happen). When the Ann Arbor News tried to contact Ketelaar for a comment, he wouldn't return calls.
Look if the entire city doesn't turn out for this meeting to try to stop this abortion, they'll regret it for decades. You thought Washtenaw Avenue was a zoo around University before? Just wait.
The city council meeting is tonight and you'd better stand up for yourselves Ann Arbor residents....
