Library Lot Conference Center

A theme has taken over Local in Ann Arbor.  The planned conference center (mostly on the Library Lot) has become so complex and with so many posts that even I can’t remember where they are.  So here is an index where we can all find the one we were looking for.

Note: the last item in this series summarizes the end of the process and links to some news coverage.  The series is now ended.

    Mr. Laal,

    I removed your comment from that page because it does not relate to the subject of the page, namely the proposal (defeated in 2011) to place a conference center and hotel on the Library Lot.

    As far as I can tell, your project is intended to make changes to the downtown library building itself. That is a different subject.

    Thank you for your interest.
