Anyone, what's the story behind the Shopping Center across from South Lyon East H.S? I moved back to MI in 09 and it was sitting there empty. I initially thought it was near completion but months later no traffic/construction. What business did they have there or supposed to be there? It seems like a decent area for business. What happened?

It was planned as 'The Shops at Hillers', or Copperwood, with the main draw a Hillers Grocery Store. Also a Rite Aid and Chase bank.

Lyon Township officials, in their usual incompetent way, are continuing to argue over landscaping, zoning, landscaping, rural feel, landscaping.

In addition to the stonewalling at Lyon Twp. I would guess since the economy is struggling that Hiller's may have backed out but I cannot confirm this.
So there you have it.

wow! 3 years of wondering. That sounds about right. Perhaps another grocery store is holding it back. So this was developed and never opened. I wonder how they got permits if the zoning was wrong.

According to Hillers management, they will open a store at Copperwood in the 2nd quarter of 2013.

It appears they are finally starting work on building out the Hillers in SL.

Still not sure when it will be opened...look forward to it. That area does need some grocery store.

One thing is clear here. Lauren does not have a clue what she is talking about! The economy and litigation, not involving the township, are the reasons for the delay.
