MACOMB TOWNSHIP — A condominium development introduced in 2018 now seeks board approval.

At the Sept. 3 Macomb Township Planning Commission meeting, a preliminary plan for a condominium development was recommended to the Board of Trustees for its approval.

The plan is for Riverview Estates Site Condominium on the south side of 24 Mile Road, east of Romeo Plank Road. The plan calls for a 48-lot single-family condominium development.

Macomb Township Planning Consultant Patrick Meagher said the subdivision meets all required lot sizes.

“The road pattern makes sense and all department heads at this point are recommending approval,” he said.

Deborah Otto, who lives at Silver Pines Village Condominiums, west of Romeo Plank Road and south of 24 Mile Road, asked where the construction entrance will be for the development.

“Given that it took me almost 15 minutes to turn left on Romeo Plank to come here, that seems to be the main concern for residents is that we have one entrance and exit,” she said.

The 48 lots will be situated on 28 acres of land. The property sits across the street from the Cracklewood Golf Course and across the intersection from St. Peter Lutheran Church and School.

Last year, Meagher said it being developed as a condo site means it will most likely have some shared space with individual lots being maintained by the homeowners. He expects the development to have a mixture of ranch style and two-story homes, although he said that had not yet been discussed by press time.

Township Engineer Jim Van Tiflin said the project was at one point two separate projects that have now combined into one. He said a pump station will need to be built as part of the sanitary infrastructure.

With 24 Mile becoming a busier road, Meagher said doing a single-family development was probably the best option to not introduce a ton of traffic. He said the Macomb County Sheriff’s Office has also voiced opinions on the intersection being a concern for deputy patrols.

Combined with other multi-family developments in the area, this new subdivision should fit in, Meagher said.

Van Tiflin said design work is the next step of the process. The development team will work with the engineering department on plans before coming back for final approval.

The proposed development was not on the Board of Trustees Sept. 11 meeting agenda.
