Motion Carried.

 

Unfinished Business:

Pray moved and Bowen seconded to Un-table SF Real Estate LLC Rezoning Request. Motion carried unanimously. After an extensive review, it was determined there is a disconnect between the Master Plan and Future Land Use Map. The Master Plan recognizes Lansing Road Corridor as our number one opportunity for business growth, but the Future Land Use Map identifies the parcels in the rezoning request as residential. Chairperson Holtz recognized a well-researched letter that was received from G. Austin Robison. Holtz moved and Sabourin seconded to recommend that the Township Board deny the rezoning request submitted by SF Real Estate LLC to change parcels numbers 080-085-600-201-00, 080-085-600-180-00, 080-085-600-010-00, 080-003-300-090-00, 080-003-300-145-00, 080-003-300-110-00, 080-003-300-126-00 and 080-003-300-129-00 from R-1D (Medium Density Residential) to M-1 (Light Industrial) due to under Section 9.3.2 of the Zoning Ordinance the rezoning of all parcels is not appropriate as it does not conform to the Future Land Use Map.

Roll Call:

Ayes: Sabourin, Barnhart-Smith, Holtz, Pray and Bowen

Nays:  None

Absent: Johnson and Fabijancic

Motion Carried.

 

Hear Public present on any subject: Public comment heard.
