Oakwood council members deny hotel, table townhomes

By Alyson Shields Reporter

Oakwood City Council unanimously denied a rezoning application for a proposed hotel in the city at their meeting Monday night.
 
Councilman Dwight Wood motioned to deny the request by Detroit Lenders LLC for a Candlewood Suites.
 
"It was basically denied on the grounds it did not meet the character area identified in our city's comprehensive plan," said City Manager Stan Brown.
 
Pat Jones seconded and the council voted in agreement.
 
Meanwhile, council once again tabled a rezoning request from AH Development Partners LLC after receiving new information from the developer about the townhomes they wished to build.
 
Previously the council tabled the request until the Feburary meeting per the developer's request. It will now come off the table at the March meeting. "To review some of those changes - driveway sizes and that sort of thing," said Brown.
 
The council also approved the abandonment of Sims Road, as the business next to the road was looking to purchase parcels on the road would make it not useful for the city.
 
And, as Brown prepares to retire, B.R. White will go on to take his place. At the beginning of the meeting, Brown clarified the positions White would fill for him on the committees he had been on, or who would take his or White's place.
