New housing developments often lead to concerns about increased traffic.  But what if the additional traffic is expected to use an already busy and awkward intersection?  Ann Arbor officials hope to avoid this problem on the city's north side where Green and Dhu Varren Roads don't quite line up where they intersect with Nixon. A redesign of the intersection is expected to be part of developments planned for the area.

Ann Arbor's Planning Commission Tuesday will consider the site plan for a proposed restaurant on Fourth Avenue, as well as a change to the zoning ordinance regarding drive-thru facilities. 

Based on recommendations made Tuesday night, we may be getting a better picture of what  new development of the old YMCA property in Ann Arbor will look like.

The Ann Arbor Planning Commission issues its recommendations last night. Should the city choose to sell the property to a private developer, the Planning commission urges it use the "Request For Proposal" process. 

As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, the commission also include a list of conditions any developer should have to meet in order to benefit the city in the long term.
