Town hall meeting on Venture proposal

Residents are invited to attend a Thursday, Oct. 27 town hall meeting regarding a proposal to transform the existing Oxford Village municipal complex on W. Burdick St. into a mixed-use development that includes affordable apartments for senior citizens.

The 6 p.m. meeting will take place at Immanuel Congregational United Church of Christ, located at the corner of Hovey and Dennison streets, one block west of M-24. The address is 1 Hovey St.

Venture, Inc., a subsidiary of the nonprofit Oakland Livingston Human Service Agency, is proposing to purchase the 1.7-acre complex for $450,000.

It wants to renovate and expand the existing 13,624-square-foot building to accommodate a mix of commercial, retail and office space. Venture is also proposing to add second and third floors to the existing building to accommodate 32 to 40 one and two-bedroom apartments for senior citizens age 55 and older.

Citizens are encouraged to learn about this proposal and provide their input.
