The Willow

 

continued

The houses on Shady Lane don't look so old, either--perhaps fifty years or so. But that willow, guardian of Shady Lane, is ageless.

--

The following Calls & letters item was published in the September 2012 Ann Arbor Observer:

Taxes and trees on Shady Lane

To the Observer:

We are too Ann Arbor!

I have been a tax paying City of Ann Arbor citizen since 1998 and most of my neighbors on Shady Lane have followed suit [My Town, "The Willow," August]. Only two or three properties on the street are still Pittsfield Township. Please check the facts using up-to-date maps, not ones from 2010(!).

The house described as unpretentious with the items strewn about in the yard has previously been reported to the city standards office, and is out of character with the rest of the properties on Shady Lane.

Please consider a follow up on the rest of the nicely maintained houses, with no inoperable cars in the street and nicely manicured lawns.
