One of two giant developments proposed for the Milan area has been canceled by the developer:

An Oakland County developer has withdrawn its plan for a huge development of about 9,000 homes and commercial and community buildings on 4,900 acres south of Milan, leaving Milan Township officials puzzled and some residents relieved.

Glenn Oswald, a spokesman for Crosswinds Communities of Novi, said the lack of infrastructure, primarily for water and sewer service, and the cost and time that would be required to install it were the main reasons behind the decision not to proceed.
