Judge Brian Sullivan of the Wayne County Circuit Court cautioned attorneys from Plymouth Township last week that the municipality must comply with the stipulations of a consent judgment allowing the construction of LA Fitness on Ann Arbor Road.
The judge granted the request of attorney Timothy S. Wilhelm for a 21-day period to obtain the necessary permits and agreements to allow the construction.
Sullivan made it clear during the hearing that the consent agreement between Plymouth-Haggerty Associates, LLC, the owner of Plymouth Towne Center on Ann Arbor Road west of Haggerty Road and the township is “operable” and the objections and arguments against the construction of an LA Fitness were without merit.
The only objection to the plan Wilhelm could offer was that the LA Fitness is now on the corner of the complex rather than in the center.
Sullivan said the agreement, originally signed 11 years ago and revised repeatedly to meet ongoing demands of the township, required the plan for the fitness facility be “consistent” not “identical.”
The developer is also asking the court for $107,000 in professional fees and $14,000 paid to the township for “professional review and copying charges.”
