Title
Resolution to Approve MMG Plymouth Road Mixed Use Planned Project Site Plan and Development Agreement, 3611-3621 Plymouth Road (CPC Recommendation: Approval - 9 Yeas and 0 Nays)
Memorandum
Approval of this resolution will allow for the construction of a new six-story hotel and a restaurant renovation.

Petition Summary:

The maximum height limit in the C3 district is 4 stories and 55 feet, and the proposed hotel is 6 stories and 65 feet 10 inches.
