Historical Meeting Minutes and Agendas

Planning Commission: Thursday, January 26 @ 6:30 pm – Planning Commission

Please note:  The Planning Commission will be working with a large map of the Township which will be difficult to view via Zoom.  We will put a smaller scale map up via screen share during that time.  The Commissioners will be surrounding the map and will likely impair the view from the camera.

This meeting the Planning Commission will be working on the Master Plan update.  We will discuss Housing Readiness and Future Land Use.

Meetings are held at the Township Hall and are open to the public.  Due to the small room capacity, and for the convenience of the public, they are broadcast via Zoom.  Both remote and in-person participants are recognized during Public Comment.
