LivingstonDaily in Michigan reports Mike Hendee has been trying to develop his 144-acre site halfway between Lansing and Detroit into a 498 site manufactured housing community since 2002. Favorable rulings by the Livingston County Circuit Court and the Michigan Court of Appeals were overturned by the state supreme court which ruled the Putnam Township must decide. The township earlier had enacted a six month moratorium on all rezoning requests which Hendee contends was to block his request. Township treasurer Pat Carney says Hendee’s request does not fit the master plan for the county. MHProNews.com has learned the moratorium has been lifted but the township has once again denied his request, and Hendee expects his appeal will again be denied, and he will file suit once more.
