Taylor looks to change
zoning for development



Mayoral candidate
outlines plans for
building regulations
Daily StaffReporter
- If elected this November,
Democratic mayoral candidate
Christopher Taylor has said he
plans to initiate changes in zoning
and to further regulate the kinds
of buildings constructed in Ann
Arbor's downtown area if he is
elected mayor in the general elec-
tion this November..
Developmenthasbeen aheavily
discussed topic inthe mayoral race
thus far and a key issue among the
four candidates in the Democratic
mayoral nomination during the
August primary.
Following the crowded primary
in which Taylor garnered a near
majority of the vote as the Demo-

cratic candidate, his name will
appear next to Bryan Kelly's on
the general election ballot. Kelly,
an independent candidate, entered
the race with an emphasis on
downtown development as well,
suggesting Ann Arbor maintain its
green, small-town feel.
The recent increase in the rate
of downtown development in
Ann Arbor has increased tensions
between developers and residents,
and has raised the question of
what type of city its leaders hope
it will become. Specifically, the
development issue regards high-
rise apartments that predomi-
nantly house University students.
One development decision
made in January - the approval
of the construction of a building
located at 413 E. Huron St. - was
heavily debated preceding its
approval, and continues to be a
pivotal issue in this mayoral race.
On his campaign website, Tay-
lor, who gave the deciding vote in


approving the site plan, calls the
413 E. Huron St. decision "a stark
reminder we need to do better."
The case was characterized as a
lose-lose situation. Councilmem-
bers were caught between facing
a possible lawsuit if they were to
reject the construction of the 413
E. Huron St. building, which was
zoned for such a building and
therefore legal, yet some council-
members and residents felt the
construction would be unattract-
ive and obtrusive.
"I think that the 413 E. Huron
building showed we did not get the
zoning right in that location," Tay-
lor said in an interview with The
Michigan Daily. "We've seen alotof
blocky buildings lately, and I think
people want density downtown and
people want commercial activity
downtown, but they don't like the
way a lot of our new buildings look."
Taylor said, as mayor, he would
take several actions in response
to residents' disapproval of
recent downtown development.
These actions include seeking to
reevaluate zoning throughout
the downtown area, determining
the potential for certain kinds of
buildings and improvements - as
well as the possible consequences
of every building design and con-
struction opportunity - and mak-
ing zoning changes preemptively
when necessary.
He said the general zoning
has served the city well, but only
needs minor adjustments to avoid
incidents like the 413 E. Huron St.
decision and to better meet the
needs of citizens.
"We need to make sure the zon-
ing downtown is proper," Taylor
said. "I don't, however, think our
zoning needs wholesale overhaul."
The process of development
approval includes the approval and
consideration of the Design Review
Board and the Planning Commis-
sion, the members of which are
both chosen by the mayor before
being presented to City Council.

he would make as mayor would
be to ask that the Design Review

Delta Tau Lambda
brings speakers to
discuss social justice
Daily StaffReporter
Drawing attendees from
pcross the state, Delta Tau
Lambda, a Latina sorority at the
University, hosted its 21st annu-
al "Salute to Latinas" event in
the Michigan League Ballroom.
The event aimed to unite
women regardless of their
social and cultural identities
by providing an atmosphere of
empowerment. The night fea-
tured keynote speeches from
prominent social justice activ-
ists in the state.
"We hope that our audience
takes away that while they
might experience something
thdy may not be knowledgeable
about, (they will hear) experi-
ences of another woman and to
be a little more open minded,"
said LSA senior Wendy Cortes,
an event coordinator.
Cortes said she often sees cul-
tural events on campus being pro-
moted by a single diversity group

as opposed to several collaborating
on a larger multicultural event.
"Instead of minority groups
unifying to reach the shared
goal, they kind of separate each
other, and there is a lot of bias.
In my personal opinion I think
there could be a lot more prog-
ress made if groups unified,"
Cortes said.
Though the event was put on
by a Latina sorority, the audi-
ence included attendees of all
genders and ethnicities. Fel-
low Multicultural Greek Coun-
cil members, such as Kappa
Phi Lambda, an Asian-interest
sorority, also attended.
"We like to show up and sup-
port other Greek orgs within
our MGC ... We like to support
each other by showing up to
each of our events," said LSA
senior Rosy Liao, a Kappa Phi
Lambda member.
Ida Lu, another member of
Kappa Phi Lambda, had attend-
ed the event in the past.
"We just want to support the
other Greek organizations and
also learn about the culture and
spread awareness about differ-
ent cultures," Lu said. "Last year
it was in a different environ-

ment, so I'm excited to see what
they have this year."
The keynote speaker for the
event was artist and hip-hop
dancer Piper Carter, who talked
about the importance of people
sharing their own stories and
being able to share them.
"People of color are taught
that our existence is not valu-
able," Carter said.
Carter narrated her child-
hood in New York City, where,
despite being African American,
she lived in a predominantly
Puerto Rican neighborhood and
attended a Jewish school. As she
recounted anecdotes from her
upbringing, several Puerto Rican
audience members clapped and
agreed out loud with similarities
in their own upbringing.
One particular story Carter
told was of how her Puerto
Rican babysitter would give her
a warm milk and sugar bever-
age- a childhood memory still
stays with her today.
"And what's important
about that is ritual and family,"
Carter said. "How many of you
went back and felt really good?
Wasn't that like the best thing?
