MAYBE SPRING WILL ARRIVE SOON?

April was a relatively slow month, but we’ll pick up the pace here in May.

The Planning commission is going to be busy with meetings on Tuesday, May 10th and Wednesday May 11. Please visit the web site for agenda items. Tuesday will involve Public Hearings on Scoops 31 business expansion and Torchport Airpark Memorial Day activities. Wednesday public hearing will be with regards to Dollar Generals application. If you want your voices heard come to the meetings or send letters to the Zoning Administrators office with your thoughts.

At this point there is very little for our next Board meeting. I am awaiting word from Lansing as to our request for funds for our Day Park. We have requested $50,000 for this year’s expenses and starting a reserve for the repair of the boat ramp. In addition, there has been no movement on the police enforcement officer that was recently discussed in March. I am awaiting word from Elk Rapids Village as to their interest in working together in providing public safety enforcement for Torch Lake Township.

The Steering Committee is waiting for the final draft of the new zoning ordinances that we have been working on for over six months. Once we receive that from our Zoning Administrator, the committee will do one final review before passing the document on to the Planning Commission for their full review and conducting the necessary public hearings.

We will continue to live stream all meetings via YouTube including the Township Board, Planning Commission, Zoning Board of Appeals and Steering Committee for rewriting the Zoning Ordinances. Always check the Website for information for watching these important meetings. In addition, prior recordings of meetings are included through the link below.
