On Monday, Nov. 13, 2017 @ 7 pm Board of Trustees meeting, the township attorney, Bill Hampton, is requesting the Trustees to approve a Consent Judgment. The Bloomfield Hills school board will be voting on November 16, 2017. The school board urges the township to accept this CJ.
It concerns one parcel of land (4.603 acres) on Franklin Rd. owned by Nosan Companies. A proposal was presented to build 5 separate homes at the March 8, 2016 Board of Trustees meeting. The Township eventually denied that proposed site plan on Jan. 23, 2017 Board of Trustees meeting. Those meetings have been audio video recorded and archived here. Lawsuit ensued.
That Franklin Rd. property is adjacent to the E.L. Johnson Nature Center owned by the Bloomfield Hills School District. They also objected to the Nosan Companies redevelopment of that 4.6 acre parcel. The surrounding neighbors also objected for the most part.
Thus, through discussions while this case was in the legal system, apparently the BHSD will give the developer 8.04 acres of school owned property on WING LAKE ROAD and in exchange receive the 4. 6 acres on FRANKLIN RD. adjacent to their nature park. But that is not all...
The Township, however, must accept a SITE PLAN for 10 UNIT site condo residential housing development from Nosan... as Nosan proposes ... subject to Twp. revisions that the developer would agree with on the WING LAKE RD. property. Otherwise, no deal.
If the exchange of land by the developer (Nosan) and the school district (BHSD) and/or the 10 condo plan does not happen within so many days, then the Consent Judgment defaults to the decision that the Township MUST approve the previously denied site plan on the Franklin Road property. Thereby allowing the 5 home development.
This agenda item is NOT a PUBLIC HEARING, therefore no one may comment.... unless they come to this meeting and present their opinion during AGENDA #1 Public Comment.
