ST. JOSEPH — After more than 50 years in business, Nye’s Apple Barn in St. Joseph Township is calling it quits, and nearby residents are not pleased with a proposed plan for the property.

The St. Joseph Township Planning Commission got its first look Tuesday at a proposal for a Planned Unit Development on the 12-acre parcel on Niles Road near I-94, at exit 27. The property is zoned single-family residential.
