BOYNE CITY -- Devlon Properties Inc. will not be allowed to use a building permit issued to the company in 2004 to develop a $6.6 million hotel and condominium development on Lake Street in Boyne City.
The Michigan Court of Appeals stood behind a decision made this spring by a Charlevoix County Circuit Court judge that said Boyne City officials were correct that Devlon Properties' building permit properly expired a year earlier for the original intended development.
The company is now interested in transforming the piece of property on North Lake Street into a public/private marina, said James VandeWyngearde, an attorney for the company, to the Boyne City Commission at its last meeting in October.
"We want to clean this property up" in order to pursue future development at the site, he said.
In order to do so, the company will now need to apply for a new permit for any project they pursue.
