Carriage Hills Shopping Center, Okemos, Mich.
Last month, WILX reported the Meridian Township Planning Commission was considering a special use permit request from DTN Management to place a CSL Plasma Center in the Carriage Hills shopping center where the former L&L grocery store once operated.
The request was met with concern and opposition from many of the residents living in the neighborhoods nearby, including Bree Anderson.
"It can only have a negative impact, it's completely inconsistent with the Meridian Township Master Plan in terms of bringing in economic development to this area," Anderson said.
At the Nov. 18 public hearing for the special use permit dozens of residents packed into the meeting to express their concerns while representatives from both CSL Plasma and DTN Management argued their cases.
The commission is expected to vote on the request tonight, but if it is denied DTN Management could potentially appeal the decision.
WILX's Josh Sidorowicz will be at the meeting which begins at 7pm at the township municipal building, 5151 Marsh Road, and will have a full report on News 10 at 11.
