Public Hearing Notice

Ypsilanti City Council

Virtual Meeting

A public hearing will be held by City Council to receive comments on the following:

Zoning Ordinance Text Amendment:
PMD District Permissible Use Table, Definitions and Regulations for Adult Regulated Uses

City Council will consider proposed amendments to the text of the zoning ordinance (Ypsilanti City Code Chapter 122). Planning Commission recommended City Council adopt the proposed amendments at their July 21, 2021 meeting. The proposed amendments would: (1) restate and support the City’s substantial government interest in regulating the location of adult regulated uses to prevent their deleterious secondary effects; (2) allow certain adult regulated uses presenting presumptively-protected First Amendment expression (adult entertainment businesses, cabarets) to be permitted as of right in the PMD district, subject to the buffer regulations in §122-512, (3) keep other adult regulated uses (massage businesses, pawnshops) as special land uses, (4) remove stray notes about adult regulated uses that appear in an unrelated row of the use table in §122-431, and (5) update certain definitions applicable to adult regulated uses in §122-203.

City Council agendas and packets are available at The drafted text amendments may be viewed there, or may be viewed in the July 21, 2021 Planning Commission packet at For further information, please call 734-483-9646 or email Andy Aamodt, City Planner, at For a full calendar of City events, please go to our website at
