releases
new plan
Proposal aims to add
additional service to
Ypsilanti as well as
late-night busing
By YOUNJOO SANG
Daily News Reporter
The Ann Arbor Transporta-
tion Authority recently proposed
a 30-year Transit Master Plan
that would improve transporta-
tion between the Ann Arbor and
Ypsilanti areas, potentially easing
the burden of transportation for
students lacking other forms of
travel.
The plan, described by
AATA as a "30-year strategy that
addresses various public transit
needs in the county," strives to
implement suggestions and feed-
back from the community as well
as transit service providers as part
of a collaborative effort.
Mary Stasiak, manager of
community relations for AATA,
said the transit plan focuses on
four different services to better
serve the Ann Arbor and neigh-
boring areas.
"We are trying to improve
connections, improve frequency,
late-night service, weekend ser-
vice between Ann Arbor and Ypsi-
lanti, primarily in Washtenaw, but
not limited to that," she said.
In order to make the proposal
work, Stasiak said that AATA has
been reaching out to public and

passed in an 8-2 vote, sets spe-
cific zoning guidelines for medi-
cal marijuana dispensaries and
cultivation facilities in the city
and calls for a maximum of 20
licenses to be given to dispensa-
ries during the first year, with a
licensing board determining the
allowance of additional appli-
cants.
Sabra Briere (D-Ward 1) -
one of the primary forces behind

the legislation - said she is con-
tent with the ordinances, largely
because city governments often
follow the lead of other political
entities, rather than formulating
more non-traditional policy.
"It was difficult because
there isn't a model for medical
marijuana - not for licensing
and not for zoning ... we didn't
know what would work, in other
words," she said.
Briere added she didn't see
a need for changes in zoning
or licensing policies until Ann
