Proposed Northville Mega Church Shifts Plan
Triumph Church, which owns property on Beck Road in Northville Township, takes the position that it is not subject to a special land use permit requirement for religious institutions.
Planning Commission Chair Robert Nix said this was done at the applicant's request. The Christian "mega church" was hoping to get special land use approval as a religious institution to open a location on Beck Road, between Five and Six Mile roads. However, the church has now involved a lawyer, he said.
"Their lawyer has taken the position that they are not subject to the special land use permit," Nix said.
He said the township's lawyer is discussing the matter with the church's lawyer, and he is optimistic that the issue will be resolved.
