Two buildings came down last month at Northville's former psychiatric hospital on Seven Mile Road.
"Now we're looking for other options to get other buildings down," said Tom Casari, Northville Township's director of Public Services.
The old Robert Scott Correctional Facility, the former prison on Five Mile and Beck roads in Northville Township, was also demolished and reduced to dust in July.
The township's board of trustees plans to discuss both properties at a special meeting 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Asbestos removal and demolition of the two Seven Mile property buildings cost $650,000, part of which was paid by a federal grant, he said. The next step is for the township to find funding for further demolition on the property."We feel that it is taking too long to clear out the old psychiatric hospital and the outbuildings," said Patch reader Kathy Fox in a comment.
For the Five Mile property, the next step is getting community input on what to do with the location once its ready for development.
Patch reader Mark Anderson said in a comment that the the neighboring Northville Community Park should expand into the former prison property on Five Mile Road. Others would like to see the space used for retail.
"I would love a Whole Foods," said reader Kalen Poulos in a comment. "The closest one is in Ann Arbor and the other one is in Orchard Lake. Though the regular grocery stores are trying, I think many would like a healthier food store near them."
Casari said residents are invited to share their suggestions at Wednesday's meeting in Northville Township Hall, 44405 Six Mile Road.
