MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - At the November 26 Meridian Township Planning Commission meeting one of the items up for discuss was the request for a Special Use Permit from Fewewa Holdings.
The request is to construct a 15-unit townhouse complex comprised of two buildings totaling approximately 21,735 square feet at 1730 Chief Okemos Circle.
One of the buildings would contain nine, 1,615 square foot units each consisting of three bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms, an attached 2-car garage, and decks in the rear. The second building would contain six, 1,200 square foot units each consisting of two bedrooms and 2-1/2 bathrooms, an attached 2-car garage, and decks in the rear. Each building would be two-stories and would not contain basements.
During the meeting one resident talked about several concerns including there being no space between her backyard and bright lights coming into her home.
After a lengthy discussion the Commission decided that there were too many variance and denied moving the project forward until further changes were made.
