Art, public hearings on Farmington Hills council agenda

Farmington Hills city council members will on January 14 recognize artists who are part of the city’s Public Art Program exhibit, before taking up a meeting agenda that includes two public hearings.

Officials will meet first at 6 p.m. in the Community Room, to discuss a resolution tied to the conversion of Harrison High to a community center, the city’s tax abatement policy, and an update on marijuana related to changes in state law.

The 7:30 p.m. meeting agenda includes:

  • a public hearing and possible adoption of the 2019-2023 Parks and Recreation Master Plan;
  • a public hearing and possible approval of a Planned Unit Development for 31015 Grand River Ave., formerly occupied AJ Danboise, to establish a 51-foot-tall, self-storage facility and offices for ServiceMaster, an insurance restoration company; and
  • an amendment to a consent judgment for the Halsted Village Shopping Center to allow for construction of a drive-through Panera restaurant.

The agendas for both meetings are posted at
