UPDATE: Farmington Hills council holds hearing on 8 Mile property rezoning

Farmington Hills city council members on Monday cancelled a public hearing on the rezoning of two vacant properties on the city’s southern border.

A message that appeared as participants logged into the Zoom meeting indicated that both a study session and the regular meeting would not be held. Officials will address topics on the agenda at a later meeting.

The owner of parcels at 33466 and 33474 W. 8 Mile Road, just west of Farmington Road, has requested a rezoning from Planned Office District to General Business District. General Business District zoning allows for a larger number of potential uses, including retail, service-related businesses, and restaurants.

The Planning Commission in September recommended the actions with 8-1 votes.

A proclamation honoring and recognizing Community Policing in Farmington Hills and appointments to the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority were also on the 7:30 p.m. agenda.

During a 6 p.m. study session, officials were scheduled to talk about the retirement of City Manager Dave Boyer, and hear road construction and ordinance updates.
