Maple Grove Studies Proposal for Church, Housing Development
The Maple Grove Planning Commission voted 4-2 to recommend approval of a plan for a new church and residential development. If approved, a church would be surrounded by apartment buildings and townhomes.
Commission members voting no cited objections to the location of one of the apartment buildings. They also raised concerns that the developer had not reached out to neighbors to discuss the plans as the commission had earlier requested.
“I thought that was one of the things that we asked that you guys would try to do is try to reach out to some of the neighbors,” said Larry Colson, chair of the Maple Grove Planning Commission. “We had people to the south, people to the east, and that was to try and eliminate some of these issues. That was one of the specific directives.”
The Maple Grove City Council is expected to review the plans Monday.
