The Northville Township Planning Commission removed discussion of the special land use and site plan approval of Triumph Church from its agenda at Tuesday night's meeting.
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.
