Birmingham voters rejected a controversial $58-million parking garage and Highland Park said no to commercial marijuana operations within its borders as more than a dozen cities around metro Detroit held primary elections Tuesday.

The parking deck, defeated 68 percent to 31 percent, would have brought construction to the area of North Old Woodward at Bates. 

Highland Park's pot facilities licensing proposal lost 56 percent to 44 percent in, with only 1,000 people voting.

In Bloomfield Township, voters defeated a plan to raise $135 million in property taxes over 15 years to fund public safety.

Full primary results from around the area are here.
