On October 2, 2008, the Downtown Ann Arbor Historical Street Exhibit program dedicated and celebrated two new wall panels that will be on permanent display on the northeast corner of Washington and Ashley streets. Speakers at the event include Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje, Thomas Aprill, grandson of Theophil Aprill; John Metzger, third generation owner of Metzger's Restaurant; and Ray Detter, Street Exhibit coordinator. The panels cover the topics "From Horses to Cars: Early Autos, Service and Parts" and "Three Generations of Metzgers on Washington Street."
The third forum in the City of Ann Arbor’s series on sustainability focuses on Sustainable Systems. Representatives from community organizations, City of Ann Arbor staff, and Washtenaw County staff will join the public to discuss local sustainability efforts and challenges, including an overview of city wet weather projects and community-led solutions to increased precipitation. The panel will begin at 7 pm on Thursday, March 12 in the Downtown Library’s Multi-Purpose Room, and will allow plenty of time for audience questions.
