There will be some new faces at the table when the Royal Oak Planning Commission meets Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall.

Last week, Mayor Jim Ellison appointed Royal Oak residents Gary Quesada and Jeffrey Chase to the Planning Commission. Mayor Pro-Tem David Poulton will also join the delegation that reviews plans for future developments in the city.

The appointments were necessary because of the recent election Sharlan Douglas and Jeremy Mahrle. Both were former resident representatives on the Planning Commission but can no longer hold those positions due to their election to the City Commission, according to City Manager Don Johnson.

Former Commissioner Jim Rasor is also departing. Rasor, the former City Commission appointment, chose not to run for reelection in November.

Senior assisted living facility, credit union top agenda


When the Planning Commission meets this week, they'll tackle the following items:

  • Public Hearing: Special Land Use & Site Plan to renovate and expand existing building and convert former convalescent center with 89 beds into senior assisted living facility with 40 one-person units at 718 W. Fourth St. 
  • Public Hearing: Special Land Use & Site Plan to construct new financial institution with drive-through service (Genisys Credit Union) and renovate existing professional office building at 520-528 N. Main St.
  • Site Plan to convert automobile parts retail store into medical office (Schilling Pediatrics) and renovate residential accessory off-street parking lot at 4401 W. Thirteen Mile Rd.

Like the conversion to a Credit Union...going to be a nice looking block with the Royal Music store converted into a really nice looking building with retail in the front.
