Chairman Bronson noted that under Old Business in the November meeting minutes there was an omission. Mr. Proctor reported on unkempt properties in the Ag District, west of US 23, specifically regarding overgrown areas. He found very few that would be helped if smaller lots were allowed, as some have suggested. He did not think an amendment to the ordinance would make much of an impact as it doesn't appear to be a serious problem.Mr. Proctor made a motion to accept the minutes as amended, Ms. Brockman supported this motion. They were unanimously accepted.
All members present reviewed the agenda for the regular meeting/public hearing of December 20, 2017. Mr. Sedlar then made a motion to accept it as is, Mr. Plumb seconded this motion and all members were in favor.
Jennifer & Tim Kelly and Maria Bronson was the public present but had no Public Comment.
Communications – Chairman Bronson noted that the township board sent a letter to John and Rebekah Dubois stating that their property zoning on M-50 is being reverted back to Agricultural. Crystal Flash is no longer doing business on it and under the Conditional Zoning agreement it goes back to the original zoning classification.
Chairman Bronson at this time read the criteria for the special approval section 15.3 of the ordinance book and said to keep in mind that they needed to meet all of these points. Along with the special approval criteria there are specific requirements for the Bed & Breakfast to operate under section 7.3 item a. We did receive a list of these requirements from the Kellys and they had addressed all of the them and it is on record with the township. That list and more was presented to this board during the previous rezoning meeting. There was no public comment on this matter. With no further discussion Mr. Proctor made a motion to recommend to grant the special approval, Mr Plumb seconded his motion and all were in favor.
Having concluded the business of the public hearing Mr. Sedlar moved with support from Mr. Salenbien to adjourn the meeting it was unanimously accepted.
