Housing + Affordability Community Survey

Welcome!

Welcome and thank you for participating in this survey regarding the potential redevelopment of 121 E. Catherine, 353 S. Main, 309 S. Ashley, and 721 N. Main. These city-owned sites in and around downtown are being considered for the development of additional affordable housing. We are currently in the conceptual design phase. The graphics and information provided are intended to spur discussion and feedback from the Ann Arbor community.

This survey should take approximately 5-7 minutes per site. You may self-select the site(s) you would like to provide input on. Your responses will be confidential and compiled with others to help advance ideas for important topics relating to the redevelopment of these sites in Ann Arbor. We appreciate your response to all questions, but responses to each question are not needed in order to complete the survey. 


Thank you for your input!
