Lowe arrived at 7:35 pm.
Elkow, Elkow Homes, who recently purchased 76 units in Crystalwood, was present
to discuss his plans. He has met
with the residents several times, and has signatures of support from 21 of
29 owners; he has set up a homeowner’s association. Bob Hanvey reminded the board members that the property was
originally part of a consent judgment. Phil Adkison, Mr. Elkow’s attorney,
was also present to discuss the various options. He suggested that the township board appoint a representative to
negotiate a revised consent judgment. Dan
Lowe said the consent judgment designated the roads as public, and he needs
it to stay that way. Board
members felt that the Planning Commission should be involved; it will be put
on the next Planning Commission agenda. In the meantime, Bob Hanvey, Dan Lowe and Mike Kehoe will work with
the owner to revise the consent judgment.

offer has been made on the Copperfield lots for $13,000 per lot, and the
developer would complete the paving. They
would like to purchase four lots right away and the remainder of the 19 lots
by the end of 2013. It was
suggested that the developer would need a performance bond or letter of
credit for the amount of the paving and the purchase price of all of the
lots. Bob Hanvey will present
the offer and report at the next meeting (AI #2.)
