While most attention was being paid to President Barack Obama visiting Ann Arbor Wednesday, an important sale was completed.  Dennis Dahlmann the owner of the Campus Inn and the Bell Tower Hotel completed the purchase of the former Y-M-C-A lot on South Fifth Avenue. 

City Administrator Steve Powers thinks the sale is a positive in two ways.

Ann Arbor City Administrator Steve Powers says work on the sale of the former YMCA lot to Dennis Dahlmann continues to go smoothly.   However with the city facing a December 16th deadline to repay the $3.5 million installment purchase agreement city council has approved a six month extension on the loan.
