Lindbom Development Foes Meet to Plan Strategy 

WHMI FM (Livingston County, MI)
February 12, 2020 

Some 25 neighborhood residents who live near where a 140-apartment development is proposed on the vacant Lindbom School property in Brighton attended a meeting Tuesday night to galvanize opposition to the project.  

The preliminary site plan for the development - West Village Townhomes - was approved by the Planning Commission last week, and the developer, SR Jacobson of Bingham Farms, has six months to come up with a final site plan and submit it for consideration. If approved, it still would have to go to the City Council for final action. 

The meeting, held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on the Mill Pond, was chaired by Brad Munce, who is concerned because his mother lives near the school. The residents cited various concerns, such as increasing the traffic volume as well as an underground plume of TCE (trichloroethylene), a toxic gas stemming from a former industry located near the school site. The TCE gas plume is underneath the property.
