Many events are coming up in the world of local politics, including meetings on several business developments in Ann Arbor and the possibility of a new Ann Arbor police commission.  These are just a few of the topics discussed by WEMU's David Fair and the CivCity Initiative's Mary Morgan in this week's "Civic Matters."

Last year, Ypsilanti City Council met to discuss the International Village development project, and residents were looking to have a say in the situation.  In time, the council passed a community benefits ordinance, or CBO, that would allow public input on such developments.  In this week's "On the Ground-Ypsi," WEMU's Patrick Campion and Concentrate Media's Sarah Rigg talk to Desirae Simmons, who represents REDY, the group that helped make this ordinance possible.
