Chelsea City Council Approves 425 with Lima Township for Wolf Development

By Lisa Carolin

A long debated 425 agreement received approval by the Chelsea City Council at its June 17 meeting, 6-0. (Council Member Bill Ruddock absent).

The PA 425 is an agreement for conditional transfer of property between the City of Chelsea and Lima Township. The Wolf Development project is a 40-year agreement that allows 1 mill of property taxes collected by the City of Chelsea to be paid to Lima Township annually during that time to provide utility and public services. The site is a 46-acre piece of land northeast of the intersection of N. Freer Road and Old US-12 where 172 housing units and two medical buildings are proposed to be built.

In other business, the City Council adopted the amended Policy #16, which allows for purchasing and contracting spending limits when timely action is necessary.

Council also approved a mid-year review meeting to be held at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 3.

Megan McCall was appointed to the Chelsea Planning Commission for a term ending June 30, 2027.

Other approvals at the June 17 meeting included:
