Call to Order


  • Dan Ulrich called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. in the Charlevoix Township Hall; other members present:  Ron Fratrick, Bruce Beaudoin, and Nancy Rajewski.  Absent: Eric Thompson. Also present:  Rick and Sandie Root.  The Pledge of Allegiance was given.
  • Minutes of April 27, 2016, were discussed.  Rajewski moved that the minutes be approved, Fratrick seconded.  A vote was taken and the motion carried unanimously.





  • The required Public Notice was mailed out to the appropriate surrounding property owners regarding the Public Hearing, and the Public Hearing was opened at 7:02 p.m..  Rajewski informed the PC regarding the history of zoning changes and how it affected three parcels: West Carpenter ID#004-034-002-15, West Carpenter ID#004-034-002-20, and 1600 Bells Bay Road part of ID#004-028-004-20.  In 1988 new zoning had been approved which changed the zoning for the two parcels on West Carpenter to Industrial (I)and changed the zoning for 1600 Bells Bay Road to Mineral Resource District (MRD).  In 2002, when a new zoning map was printed, the zoning of these three parcels was incorrectly identified by their zoning colors on the map, and those errors have carried through to the current zoning map.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Root asked questions to clarify and were informed that this hearing was called only to correct the color of these three parcels on the map and that there were no changes to the actual zoning.
  • Ulrich informed the PC that the Township received a letter from Haggard Plumbing in support of the corrections.
  • The Public Hearing was closed at 7:11 p.m.
  • After further discussion, Beaudoin moved, with second by Fratrick, that the PC shall recommend to the Charlevoix Township Board that the zoning map's colors for parcels #004-034-002-15, #004-034-002-20, and #004-028-004-20 be changed to properly reflect the colors of the current zoning for those parcels.
