vestor Robert Sosnick, who
wants to develop a multi-use
commerical office complex
with a hotel on one of the
township's most valuable
sites — the northwest corner
of 14 Mile and Orchard Lake
roads.
The 1975 township master
plan calls for a planned devel-
opment district in that area,
but the zoning ordinance
labels it single-family
residential. The developers
have been unsuccessful in
attempts to secure zoning
changes to develop the site.
They are asking the courts
to declare invalid the
township's zoning or-
dinance.
In a related matter, the
Builders Association of
Southeastern Michigan is
suing the township over its
woodlands ordinance, which
prohibits developers and
homeowners from cutting
down trees.
BASM claims such restric-
tions exceed the powers of
the township, creating com-
plications for all interested
parties. Most of the
township's builders are
members of the BASM and
say they are committed to
protecting the environment.

The township players

THE MEETING IS ABOUT
to begin. The trustees will
soon hear Rabbi Kagan beg
them to delay an ordinance
that will make it more dif-
ficult to plan the Lubavitch
college.
The trustees will become
defensive, claiming a college
and university ordinance
couldn't possibly relate to a
plan by Lubavitch which
they have not yet seen.
Seated to the right of
Draur on the dais is her
friend, Sharon Law, a quiet,
soft-spoken woman. She has
served as township clerk for

one year. Next to Law is Ray
Holland, who has served on
the board for 22 years, the
longest of any trustee. He is
the board member most like-
ly to question an agenda
item regarding zoning
changes.
A few years ago, Holland
endured a recall campaign
that was spearheaded by
Draur and her OUST group.
They hoped to recall the
board members who they felt
consistently supported
burgeoning development.
Holland was the only sur-
vivor of the campaign.
Supervisor John Doherty
was ill and resigned. Clerk
Betty Sue Dupree's husband
retired and they moved out
of state. And the township's
first elected Jewish trustee,
Jeff Leib, left office for a
failed election effort to
become Oakland County
prosecutor.
In a chair to the far right is
Holtz, the only Jewish
trustee. Although Holtz was
never a member of OUST,
Draur's group supported her
campaign. Holtz and Draur
don't talk much anymore.
Both say they should. Holtz
says the anti-development
mentality has been carried
to the extreme.
To the left of Draur is
Denise Hammond, township
treasurer for the past year.
She doesn't have much to
say. Just a few questions
here and there. Missing is
Gordon Allardyce, a six-year
board veteran who is
outspoken. If necessary, he
says, the board should use
force to maintain the com-
munity as a single-family
residential refuge.
And to the far left is Vat-
sis, a confident man with a
task at hand. He wants
managed growth. He's been
in office since 1978 and he's
going to continue fighting
until his mission is ac-
complished.
