Old  Business


  • Ulrich distributed to the PC a copy of the Krist Oil site plan with landscaping as previously approved.  He indicated that none of the landscaping has been accomplished yet.
  • Ulrich updated the PC on the status of the Charlevoix Assisted Living and Memory Care project that had been the subject of the last meeting and Public Hearing.  The Charlevoix County Planning Commission recommended to the Township that the plan be denied due to discrepancies in parcel numbers in the application and public posting and due to the project not matching the Township's Master Plan for that area.  The Township Board postponed any decision on the rezoning, and the developer was instructed to resubmit a corrected application.  Sullivan indicated that an amendment to the Master Plan will have to be made if the Township feels the rezoning is appropriate but that the process to amend the Master Plan is more time-consuming than just the rezoning.
  • A potential solar farm zoning ordinance was discussed.  Sullivan indicated he is still working on proposed language for the PC.
