Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Northville Psychiatric Hospital, Michigan
The American way is under attack

The fight between people in Northville Township and officials in the City of Livonia over the annexation of the Northville Psychiatric Hospital just keeps getting weirder and uglier.


When REIS approached Northville Township, they wanted $15 million in the form of a Brownfield Redevelopment funding. That was before they knew they might have to tap into the Livonia sewer system and potentially dig beneath I-275. If a Brownfield is granted, those funds will eventually be recouped, but residents expecting a major influx of capital into the city general fund any time soon will be sorely disappointed.
