CRYSTAL LAKE TOWNSHIP ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS
NOTICE OF MEETING – DEC 30, 2019
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Crystal Lake Township ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS has scheduled A MEETING for MONDAY, DECEMBER 30, 2019 at 6:00 PM at Township Hall, 1651 Frankfort Hwy (M-115), Frankfort, MI 49635 to HEAR A REQUEST FOR DIMENSIONAL VARIANCES. Mr. Joe Binkowski of 4016 Crystal Waters Lane; Grand Rapids, MI; 49525 has requested VARIANCES from the required FRONT AND REAR YARD SETBACKS for LOT 24 of the CRYSTALAIRE PLAT. Lots 23 and 24 of Crystalaire are immediately east of Broadway Road off Mollineaux Road. Lot 24 is a lawful, non-conforming lot that must be considered to be a ‘flag lot,’ which means the front lot line is west side of Lot 24 that is parallel to Broadway Road and the rear lot line is the east side of Lot 24. A ‘flag lot’ requires a front yard setback of 25 ft and rear yard setback of 15 ft. Mr. Binkowski is requesting the front yard setback be reduced to 10 ft and the rear yard setback reduced to 10 ft due to the unique situation created as a result of Lakeview Drive being inaccessible. The APPLICATION for this REQUEST FOR VARIANCES is available for public review here (click here to view) and at Township Hall during normal business hours. For further information you may contact Tom Kucera, Zoning Administrator at 231-352-9791 or during office hours on Wednesdays from 9 AM to 12 NN. Written comments, addressed to Greg Wright, Planning Commission Chair, may be delivered by mail, courier or in person at Township Hall until the close of business (5:00 PM) on November 20, 2019.
1) Most recently, an election was held on Nov. 5 for the single issue of renewing the Crystal Lake Township 1.0 "ad valorum" road millage to improve and maintain our paved roads. It was renewed, 211 to 79.
2) The election held August 6, 2019 asked if CLT voters should allow recreational marijuana establishments within the township but the results of that vote are less straightforward as the vote is now considered invalid. In fact, the whole situation concerning the vote is somewhat complicated and confusing. Please go to the Clerk's page on Elections for a full, step-by-step recap or click here.
3) The Michigan Presidential Primary will be held on March 10th, 2020.
