Reminder: I do not summarize public comments because they can be of personal nature and I want to be consistent/clear with summaries. I do think they are informative and worth watching when you are able. 

The consent agenda was approved.

The Study Meeting session previews what you can expect to hear more about in future Regular Meetings. 

A resident is interested in buying property behind his house that is currently owned by the city and zoned as a public park (29660 Gaylord Court). This is a complex process that would include rezoning and a public auction of land. It will be sent to Parks & Rec for feedback before returning to Council for further review. [Note: a couple councilmembers stated they were unlikely to support this proposal]

Ken Harb and Dillon Breen were reappointed to the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority. You can learn more about the LBRA here: https://livonia.gov/385/Brownfield-Redevelopment-Authority
