My Town Plainfield Township: Housing development plan deadline extended

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich.— The developer behind a neighborhood slated for Georgia Street and Eastern Avenue is getting more time to complete his plan.

During its regular meeting March 3, the Plainfield Township Board approved giving Bolt & Hunefeld Builders until Feb. 11, 2016 to build the project/infrastructure for Eastern Meadows.

The development was approved by the township in July 2007, but then ran into delays.  The developer was granted a two-year extension three previous times.  The developer recently requested another extension for the project, blaming the down economy for delaying work.

The township approved the extension to prevent the developer from starting the entire process over from the beginning.  Community Development Director Bill Fischer also said there appears to be no downside to extending the life of the project, which will fit well within the existing neighborhood.
