R&V also does not allow the bikes and quads, that could be a big reason why people don't have as much issue with noise.

That is a conflict of interest and his vote along with anything he had to say is against the law.
Disagree. A conflict would be if he stood to benefit financially from the project (i.e. was a partner, or was married to a partner) and participated in the vote, or for that matter, even the discussion.

An elected official being opposed to a project adjacent to his home is not generally, in the eyes of a court, a conflict.

This seems very fishy.

I think if OCPR can get it to a whole township vote, things would be a lot different!

I had heard that the OCPR/DNR could proceed without the township's approval and that stopping was more of just a courtesy. Is that true or just a rumor?

Maybe the issue shouldn't be killed off completely, but like others said, somehow brought to a larger audience for discussion or vote.

I wonder where the guy at the end by the mic lives the one who was so polite about us out of towners being there. and the one who was so quick to second the motion. I just think its odd how the one member tried to revoke the motion because it was not part of the agenda. And was shot down in a very un professional way if you ask me.

OCPR can move forward without the approval of the township but they would be reluctant to do so in fear of pissing off the locals. If they move forward without the support of the community, they may have a more difficult time getting a parks mileage passed in the future.

Yes, there is quite a bit of concern regarding the validity of that vote last night. From what I have heard it is quite unprecedented to vote immediately following a public hearing. Doing so leads to what would be viewed as a vote of emotions.

There is nothing illegal about that and it's extremely common.

Another thing that bothered me, is nobody seemed to realize if the ORV park doesn't go in, nothing goes in.

Numerous people referenced the land being used for everything but the ORV park....

Not exactly true if you read this:

http://www.michigan.gov/documents/la...6_362069_7.pdf

He had a 'personal' interest in the defeat of the issue. Using their arguments his property value would have been reduced. So by voting against it, it RAISED his property value, thus the potential monetary value. While it may be a bit of a stretch, living that close and NOT disclosing it certainly sheds a poor light on that board member.
