I mean, it's really just good that they are even talking about it. These cities - Troy is planning something similar - wouldn't have even thought about this stuff 20 years ago. Visions are important whether they are born out as planned or not because they usually set the tone for whatever ends up getting developed. If Warren is seeking a more density, I'm not going to complain.

Anyway, Ferndale is looking to fill in one of its last large tracts of land. Could have been denser, but given that the developer was only planning single family homes, originally, it could have been sprawlier.

Red-hot Ferndale weighs plans for 97-home development south of high school

A proposal to build one of the largest single-family home developments in Ferndale in years is back before the city Planning Commission this week.

Pinecrest Holdings LCC. is seeking approval to build 70 single-family homes, along with 27 multiple-family units, on 20 acres of former industrial land, just south of Ferndale High School.

Love seeing the inner-ring, be it Ferndale or Warren or anywhere else, finding new life. These are places even just ten years ago we had folks here calling "over."
