City agrees to purchase property

The city of Sturgis has reached an agreement to purchase the Wood Motel and its property.

Located near the high-profile intersection of Chicago and Centerville roads, the parcel is being acquired in part through a community development block grant, according to city manager Mike Hughes.

The city plans to demolish the single-level motel and, according to terms of the grant, leave the property vacant for five years.

The grant will pay 70 percent of the $93,000 asking price for the property, leaving the city on the hook for the balance of $27,900.

Hughes said the city would entertain proposals from prospective businesses interested in purchasing and developing the commercially zoned property.
