Join us for a three-day interactive design workshop to delineate the vision for our Ann Arbor-Saline Road and State/Ellsworth mixed-use nodes. The workshop will be held on Wednesday Sept. 17th through Friday Sept 19th and will give residents the ability to stop by, share ideas, and help us refine the vision for these areas.
In an effort to continually improve on our past work and ensure that our work reflects the current needs of our community, the Township has engaged Toole Design Group (TDG) to conduct a three-day interactive design workshop to delineate, with greater specificity, the vision for our mixed-use nodes and our form-based design districts. As Pittsfield Township promotes pedestrian-oriented development that furthers a greater sense of community within its existing developed spaces, we want to outline specific expectations that are consistent with the needs of our community.
The interactive workshop is designed to obtain input from all stakeholder groups with regard to how they envision the Ann Arbor-Saline node and the State/Ellsworth node (see attached maps) functioning in the future; the types of amenities, improvements and uses you think would further enhance the existing uses and landscape of the area.
In particular, the Township wants to ensure that the quality of existing developments is further enhanced by these nodes. Given your proximity to one of the two above-noted nodes, we would like to invite you to attend one or more of the following sessions so we can be sure to include your imput to define, with greater specificity, the vision for these nodes. All sessions will be held at the Pittsfield Township Administration Building, 6201 W. Michigan Avenue, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48108.
