Spartan: No Family Fare in Georgetown Township

GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) – A controversial retail development on the site of Georgetown’s Little League complex will not happen.

And while the decision is a major victory for opponents, they said the game’s not over.
Plans to build a retail complex, including a $9 million Family Fare grocery store on Georgetown’s current Little League site, and move the ball players to a new, developer-funded, $5 million complex have been canceled.
