Workout1 Seeks Special Land Use to Move East in City of Saline

 10/08/2017 - 02:27

Workout1 is seeking a special land use to move from their downtown location to a new location at 1408 E. Michigan Ave, on the southeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Industrial Drive.

The land is zoned for industrial.

Owner Emily Rogers, who launched the business in 2010, currently owns 7,000 in the downtown building recently sold to Klingelnberg (the old Redies building). The new building will provide her with an additional 1,82 square feet.

In a letter to the city, Rogers said she has 250-300 members. She has one full-time employee and seven part-time employees.

The City of Saline Planning Commission voted 8-0 to approve Rogers’ request and recommend it to city council, which takes up the issue Monday.

Also on the city council agenda:

  • City council will discuss the proposed non-discrimination ordinance at the work meeting, beginning at 6:45 p.m.
  • Council will go over its audit report with Plante Moran.
  • Sandeep Sachdeva, owner of the corporation that owns 450 E. Michigan Ave., is asking city council to waive a nearly $1,000 late penalty on a property tax bill.
  • Council will hear a presentation on the Washtenaw County mental health/police millage.
  • The Green Thumb awards will be presented to Paula Allison and Barry England, 300 E. Henry St.; Nancy and Joe McCann, 653 Willis Rd.; and Cheryl and Jim Hoeft, 322 N. Ann Arbor St. The business winner is Bennett Street Studio and Lily’s Flowers, 107 E. Bennett St., Saline.
