Plan to build subdivisions in orchards dismissed by township|
By James Mitchell South Lyon Herald (MI) August 3, 2006
Developers hoping to turn the Erwin Orchards into a residential-and-retail community have three choices now that township officials soundly rejected their latest plan: Walk away from the table, try again, or wait and see how the courts view the property in question.
Last week's proposal added a new topic to the discussion: Beztak's plan would require the township to finance the removal of arsenic from soil in the orchards. Beztak proposed that Lyon Township enter into a "Brownfield" agreement to pay for restoring the land.
"That's ridiculous," said Township Supervisor Lannie Young. "The Brownfield law was designed to help develop orphan properties, but this is a developable piece of property. I would never support a Brownfield."
