TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) - The City Commission of Traverse City won’t appeal a judge’s ruling regarding a permit to allow construction of two nine-story buildings.

The Traverse City Record-Eagle (https://bit.ly/1Q8JEv6 ) reports the commission decided by default Wednesday not to appeal the judge’s ruling that it didn’t adhere to zoning standards when approving the permit. A motion was made to hire a law firm to appeal, but the effort failed in a vote.

Circuit Judge Philip Rodgers last month vacated the decision to grant a special land use permit for the buildings’ development, sending it back to city commissioners.

Lauren Trible-Laucht, city attorney, said the city can’t revisit the permit to correct court-identified deficiencies unless the applicant asks for a reinspection.

Joe Quandt, attorney for the developers, said his clients “intend to meet in the next couple of days and make a decision.”
