Notice of Public hearing
for Updated Groveland Township Zoning Map
Notice is hereby given that a public hearing will be held by the Planning Commission of Groveland Township, Oakland County, Michigan on Tuesday January 24, 2006 at the Groveland Township Hall, 4695 Grange Hall Road, Holly MI 48442, commencing at 7:00 p.m. prevailing eastern time.
The purpose of the public hearing is to receive comments from the public regarding the proposed new Groveland Township Zoning Map.
Please be advised that all properties in the Township that are presently zoned AG Agriculture and R-1A Suburban Residential on the Township Zoning Map are proposed to be combined into the RE/F Rural Estate/Farm District on the new zoning map. The minimum lot area and lot width requirements of the RE/F District at 2.5 acres and 165 feet, respectively, is the same proposed as exists in the R-1A District. All farming and agricultural related uses currently permitted in the AG and the R-1A Districts, are permitted uses in the RE/F District. The reason for combining the standards of the AG and R-1A Districts into a single zoning district was to eliminate duplication. This was achieved by consolidating the same uses permitted in both districts, into the more representative and manageable. RE/F District.
Please be further advised that certain properties in the Township that are presently zoned R-1, and R-2, are proposed to be zoned RE/F on the new zoning map. The RE/F District is a single-family residential zoning district with larger lot, lower density requirements than the R-1 and the R-2 Districts. Some of the properties that are proposed on the new zoning map to become zoned RE/F, may not meet the minimum lot area, or lot width requirements of the RE/F District. Properties that do not meet these requirements will become lawful nonconforming lots of record. A lawful noncomforming lot of record may be sold as a single-family property. The property may also, have an existing home improved or expanded on the property, may have an existing home removed and a new home built on the property, or if the property is vacant, may have a new home built on it, so long as all of the applicable building setback requirements, and the building height limitations, and percent of land coverage limitations of the new district can be met. If the applicable standards of the new district cannot be met, the property owner may seek relief from the full application of these standards before the Township Zoning Board of Appeals. The reason for changing the R-1 and R-2 zoning of certain properties to the RE/F District, is in the interest of eliminating a number of what could be construed as spot zoned properties on the Township Zoning Map.
If you are interested in learning if your property is presently zoned AG or R-1A, or R-1 or R-2, on the current zoning map, and is proposed to be zoned RE/F on the new zoning map, you may contact the Groveland Township Hall. You are also invited to visit the Township Hall and inspect the proposed new Township Zoning Map. The Groveland Township Hall is open Monday through Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. The Township offices are closed on weekends and holidays.
Your written comments are also welcome. They may be forwarded to the attention of Ms. Judy Schulte, Planning Coordinator, Township of Groveland, at the above referenced address.
