We are zoned properly, they are saying we're not and want a Special Variance.
They however have not been able to tell us what that entails.
Certain Regs would make it impossible for us to operate as an ORV Park.

The more support they witness, the better!
Please come out if you can make it.

Good ole MI no matter what you do down here they stop it! Many have tried many have been shut down! If it's not up north they want no part of it. Will try to make it out.

Local government never realize that something of this size and the amount of people it draws, will only help them. The more money spent in the local area means more money ect ect

Welcome to the socialist state of Michiforina. its no suprise that they want to nail you guys, you didn't PAY for the privlage! and with that your current status is "Scum bags" & "motorised terrorests"!
I suggest you show how your group is going to bring monies to all the local business areas and make sure it incompasses about a 10 mile radius of the place. I would also like you to show how much they will loose if the park goes away. its obvious the building industry is holding your area together...everyone needs gravel!

I'll be there, can you get a hold of the owners of some of the local businesses that have already seen an increase in business on the weekends since you opened (Buddy's and that party store in Somerset) and have them speak on your behalf. I would think in this economy anything that brings money into this area would be welcomed!!!

I don't understand?

If you have a business, that is licensed by the State of Michigan, and you brought a site plan into the Township Planners/Building Inspector for review to get the permit to build/construct in which they would issue a permit if you are in occordance with the Townships Orinances, and Zoning;
Why would a township hold a Public Hearing on a Buisness that is already in legal operation? Unless you are not following your Site Plan, or did not do all of the things above, I don't know where they could get the Authority.

I believe this is not a Public hearing but rather the normal monthly township meeting (according to the township web site). After seeing some of the things the township I live in has done, I can believe almost anything.

I will be there to show my support.

I realize Bundy Hill is not near as big as Tellico but here is a good story of what a ORV area can develop into and what a community can loose. I can only believe Bundy Hill has already added a few thousand dollars to the local community already in 2 weekends.

Maybe CC can go and testify how it increased traffic on GL4x4, possibly even got some members to purchase a subscription!?!
