Plan for new downtown doctor’s office approved

SWARTZ CREEK — A new doctor’s office could be headed to downtown Swartz Creek.

Mahesh Sharman of Grand Blanc hopes to establish a practice in the former urgent care clinic at 7550 Miller Road, located on the northwest corner of Frederick Street.

Sharman proposes to expand the building by nearly 1,300 square feet with additions on the north and east sides, and improve the landscaping and parking lot.

The city’s Planning Commission approved a site plan for the project Oct. 13, but representatives are expected to return to the Planning Commission in November for clarification on some of the requirements regarding the parking lot.
