No comments from the audience:
Dimensional Variance Application of David B. Denard:
Before approval is given for the Dimensional Variance Application of David B. Denard, 2354 W. Garrison Rd., Owosso, MI 48867, Tax Roll I.D. No. 78-010-400-002, the Bennington Township Planning Commission has concerns that need to be addressed. First: the Lake Association should be notified of the on going proceeding and if approval of the Lake Association is needed, it should be granted before any further action by this board.
Second: if the variance is granted and the pole barn structure is built, the previous land division approval, dated June 2, 2003 (the land division was approved but never registered by the applicant) could be registered. This could form a non-conforming building on a lot – i.e. an accessory building on a separate lot in violation of Shiawassee County Zoning Rules. No action taken until such concerns are addressed.
The Board discussed wind energy policy.
The next Bennington Township Planning Commission meeting date will be on November 20, 2008.
Dick Demerly moved to adjourn the meeting at 9:16 PM. Seconded by Bernie Scollan. Motion carried.
