I would like to contribute

to old arguments about
traffic flow, site plan details
and questions about whether
the project was a synagogue,
college, seminary, museum
or residential housing.
Lubavitch representatives
reiterated their concern
about spending hundreds of
thousands of dollars for
detailed site plans for 11
buildings on the proposed
campus before the township
indicates approval of the
concept.
Commissioners balked at
giving special use approval
without a detailed site plan.
The logjam appeared to be
broken at 11:30 p.m. when
commissioners voted to table
the proposal in order to
study new materials provid-
ed by the township planning
staff and Lubavitch. Com-
missioners Peter E. Pekkala
and Gordon Allardyce
specifically proposed that
the group make a judgement
on the special use approval
at that time based on an opi-
nion of the township at-
torney that was issued in
June.
If special use approval is
granted by the commission,
the township board will then
consider the issue. If the
board grants approval,
Lubavitch will have to re-
peat the process with specific
site plans. ❑

West Bloomfield Tables
Lubavitch Proposal

he wheels of justice
turn slowly, but the
Lubavitch Foundation
of Michigan must believe
that the wheels of govern-
ment in West Bloomfield
turn barely at all.
The Lubavitch proposal to
build a Synagogue Campus
of Living Judaism on a 40-
acre site west of the Jewish
Community Center was
rehashed for three hours
Tuesday evening by the
West Bloomfield Township
Planning Commission. After
two years and countless
hours of dickering and staff
study by both sides, an 11th-
hour proposal to table the
project until a Nov. 12 plan-
ning commission meeting
may have sown the seeds for
Lubavitch to move foreward
in the approval process.
Lubavitch on Tuesday
asked for a special use ap-
proval and conceptual. site
plan approval for their pro-
ject. Planning commis-
sioners and staff responded
that West Bloomfield does
not forward projects to the
township board without
detailed site plans. For
hours the meeting seemed to
be stymied as the commis-
sioners recited and listened
