Big Development Aimed For Old Orchard

A developer proposes  to build a housing and mixed-use community on the Erwin Orchards site in Lyon Township. The orchard is a landmark in Lyon Twp.

“Cider Mill Village” would consist of 579 homes, townhouses, apartments and retail that would cover more than 200 acres. The plan was brought before the township’s planning commission.

There was a mixed reaction from the commission and residents. The commission will decide at a later date. The orchard has been up for sale for years.
