Planning Commission Adopts Master Plan Amendment To Allow 55+ Active Adult Community

Posted by – Steve Cohen, Director of Community Development

Last night, the Planning Commission voted unanimously to approve an amendment to the Northeast Corner Neighborhood Master Plan.  The Commission’s decision concludes the lengthy procedure required by Michigan law to amend the plan, which began five months ago.

The change will allow the development of a 55+ active adult community called Villa Montclair (f.k.a., Villa Montage), proposed by Auburn Hills-based Moceri Companies, to proceed on the property located at 3995 N. Squirrel Road.  The rezoning of the property and detailed site plan for the project are both anticipated to be publicly reviewed by the Planning Commission and City Council in January 2016.

The Planning Commission also intends to revisit the master plan for the entire Northeast Corner Neighborhood beginning in January 2016.  Stay tuned for more information.
