Board Member

Sally Hart Petersen is a former Ann Arbor City Council Member and currently serves as a Community Affordability Advocate. In this role, she works with city administrators, private sector leaders and community stakeholders to identify areas appropriate for sustainable redevelopment. Currently, Sally is leading a strategic economic development team that focuses on redevelopment opportunities along the east side of the North Main Street corridor that would activate the riverfront and improve the view shed. Sally is an avid runner and has trained for six marathons along the Huron River and through the Ann Arbor Parks systems. This experience has fueled her appreciation for the role the Huron River plays as a critical water source and recreational destination.

Sally earned a BA in psychology from Williams College and a MBA from Harvard. Sally’s husband Tim is Co-founder and Managing Partner at Arboretum Ventures. They have two children. Jack is a graduate of Lehigh University and is an Investment Analyst for Willis Towers Watson in Manhattan. Their daughter Jane is a graduate of Williams College and is a Research Analyst for Industrial Economics in Cambridge, MA.
