Southfield residents voice frustrations with school’s decision to cut down trees to add bus exit
SOUTHFIELD, Mich. – Southfield residents living in a subdivision are voicing their frustrations with a decision made by Southfield Public Schools. The subdivision sits behind the bus yard for Southfield High School. The school decided to use the area as an emergency exit road for its bus depot. The city of Southfield owned the land, but the district had a lawyer tell City Council that it would take the land through eminent domain. Residents weren’t alerted to the situation until after the council accepted the district’s $800 check for the easement.
