Voters might decide future of Crawford-Broomfield

Opponents of a development project at the southwest corner of Broomfield and Crawford roads in Mount Pleasant filed nearly 800 signatures Wednesday aimed at either overturning the rezoning decision permitting the project, or putting the zoning question before city voters.
A group of local developers, led by United Investments, plans to build a development that would include retail business, offices, student-type housing, family-type apartments, and one- and two-family homes on the 157-acre parcel. The land, adjacent to the Central Michigan University campus, is the largest piece of undeveloped land remaining in the city.
Opponents say they don't oppose development there, but are opposed to building more student-type housing.
Developers already have an approved plan for development of the land, and have said they plan to go ahead with that plan if the current plan is defeated.
