Default Help Keep KITM Open

Hello everyone,

For all of you who made it out to the 4Given 4x4 event in December you saw how fun a place KITM can be. It has been a struggle for the owners to keep it open and as you can see from their page they even had to shut down until after the court date.

Here is the info :

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP
VAN BUREN COUNTY, MICHIGAN
NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING AND REQUEST FOR SPECIAL LAND USE

TO: THE RESIDENTS AND PROPERTY OWNERS OF THE TOWNSHIP OF HAMILTON,VAN BUREN COUNTY, MICHIGAN, AND ALL OTHER INTERESTED PERSONS:

PLEASE TAKE NOTICE THAT THE HAMILTON TOWNSHIP BOARD WILL HOLD A PUBLIC HEARING IN CONJUNCTION WITH A REGULAR MEETING ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 9, 2007 AT 7:00 P.M. AT THE HAMILTON TOWNSHIP HALL LOCATED AT 52333 W. TERRITORIAL RD., DECATUR, MI 49045 ON THE FOLLOWING MATTERS:

1. A DETERMINATION WHETHER A ATV-ORV AMUSEMENT FACILITY CONSTITUTES A USE "SIMILAR TO PERMITTED USES" AND WHETHER THE SAME IS "DEEMED COMPATIBLE WITH THE CHARACTER AND INTENT" OF THE AGRICULTURAL DISTRICT ZONING CLASSIFICATION FOR SPECIAL EXCEPTION USE CONSIDERATION PURPOSES.

DECATUR, MI 49045-0145

Please help us keep this Land OPEN to wheel on, I know not all can make it, but if we can show that wheeling is a true and loved sport here in Michigan, let see just how many people can fit in the township hall! If you can't make it to the meeting, compose a letter, you can even email to me and I will fax it into the Township for you. I think after an event like the Toy 4 Tots event we had there in December we can all see that this is a place worth saving!

Thank you,

Jason Harpole

The township office is only open part time and they do not leave their fax machine on while they are out of the office. Faxes can be sent to (269)468-7478. This is Dave's fax, the owner of Kids in the Mudd. He will make sure they get to the township offices on time.

Also, the thread that I started for this a couple days ago is stickied at the top of the Pub since that's where a lot of traffic is on GL4x4.
