Another golf course is lost in MAcomb for a wonderful mixed use development. This is in an area of the county that can use all of the open space it can get. I enjoy the council womans comment that the development is " just the way it is" and Grand Swakas good history at working with cities. She should go ask Warren about all the problems that they have had with them from wrong street material to not following lot size minimums.... they expect to start around 2009

It's just as Eastpointe lost Ridgemont Golf Course for some WWII cookie cutter homes.

Danny those ranch houses built between 8 & 8 1/2 Mile (Toepher) and between east of Gratiot and Kelley are some of the nicest brick ranch houses in inner suburbs. While there are many duplicate houses, many different builders built in that section, so there is a wide variety of different models available, many with builton family rooms, and fireplaces in the living room. Those homes all have plasterwork (including nice cove ceilings in the living room) and marble sills throughout. Hardly built on the cheap.

sounds good to me! a fairly dense development in an already developed part of the county. better than bulldozing a course on 31 mile to make way for mcmansions.

Gistok,

Those Eastpointe homes around Toepfer, Gratiot and Kelly are so Detroitesque that Black folks want to buy them. They came by hundreds and you can see them as they move and live in. That Eastpointe neighborhood will be fully Black by the year 2020.

Bet the people who bought houses along the golf course are going to pissed that their golf course view will now be into someones backyard. Someone must think they can make money off of this, but who has money to buy a new house right now. By 2009 the economy of MI will still not be in good enough shape to support this kind of development.
