According to hometownlife.com, following a planning commission recommendation, the township board recently voted to reject proposed zoning text amendments that would allow campgrounds as a special permitted use in single-family residential areas and provide the appropriate definitions.
Currently, the township has zoning regulations for campgrounds, but they are not a permitted use in any zoning district.
“The planning commission basically said the township doesn’t need more campgrounds and saw no point in discussing it,” said township planner Christopher Doozan of McKenna Associates.
The text amendments were sought by Wildlife LLC, a group which indicated it would seek to establish a campground on lakefront property it purchased north of Haas Lake Park RV and Campground.
