Arcadia Neighborhood Residents Voice Objection to Property Sale

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- It appears that exactly what was feared might happen is happening in Kalamazoo’s Arcadia neighborhood.

Arcadia residents say they were promised by the city and the WMU Foundation that they would continue to have access to the Basswood Forest on the Arboretum property, that everyone would.  Now, they say that promise is being broken in the latest plans to sell to a private housing developer.

Mayor Bobby Hopewell says they are trying to secure a meeting with the WMU Foundation and the builders.  It’s an issue that has been fought over for years between homeowners, the city, and WMU.
