NOTICE TO THE CITIZENS OF LIMA TOWNSHIP
INVITATION TO REVIEW TOWNSHIP MASTER PLAN UPDATES
The Michigan Planning Enabling Act PA 33 of 2008 requires that, at least every 5 years after adoption of a master plan, a Planning Commission shall review the master plan and determine whether to commence the procedure to amend the master plan or adopt a new master plan. The Planning Commission engaged in a review of the existing document to determine if updates were necessary.
The result of the review was that the existing master plan was generally consistent with existing conditions and the future vision for the Township. However, the Planning Commission did elect to update demographic information and add some additional language to the agricultural goals section. The intent was to strengthen the indication of the Township’s commitment to preserving agricultural land. In addition maps were updated to more accurately show which land was in the preservation program, and what lands are eligible.
At their regular meeting on September 26, 2016, the Planning Commission made a motion to forward the updates to the Board with a recommendation to release the updates for the required 63 day review period.
The full Master Plan updates may be reviewed Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, 9 am-noon at the Lima Township Offices, 12172 Jackson Road, Dexter, (734) 475-2246 or email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
