    • A variance to allow Walkabout Creek Apartments to install a ground within a public road right-of-way, which is controlled by the Washtenaw County Road Commission. 

If the variance is granted, a ground sign for Walkabout Creek Apartments would be allowed within the road right-of-way, which is controlled by the Washtenaw County Road Commission, thus creating a legal non-conformity for property located at 2425 Dongara Drive (08-08-07-100-051).
