Get involved by joining township Planning Comm.

To the editor:

The Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission is looking for a new member. Maybe that is you?

Planning Commissioners are appointed by the Board of Trustees and we are responsible for the planning and zoning in our Township. We meet the first Tuesday of the month from 6-8 p.m. at the Township Hall which is in the Hansen’s Plaza. Our meetings rarely go beyond 8 p.m. and can only do so by passing a motion.

We are a diverse group of people with differing opinions and experiences and we value that. We carefully consider all the site plans and zoning issues brought to us understanding our decisions can have far-reaching effects. Currently we are nearing the end of a complete Zoning Ordinance revision. The Township support staff are excellent and we are lucky to have them as part of our team. Our discussions are often interesting and always thorough.

We have an opening for a Planning Commissioner. This a great way to get involved locally and have a real impact on land-use planning. If you are a resident of Suttons Bay Township and are interested please contact the Suttons Bay Township Office at 271-2773 for more information.
