This property is generally located North of Wilder Road, East of the U.S.-23 Right of Way line which is also referred to as the “M-13 connector”. All the above property is not zone commercial but the proposed location of the development which required an extraordinarily high Special Use Permit is in a commercial zone. The proposed development is in a commercial zone which has a maximum height of 35 feet and the development proposed by the owner of this property would have a roof parapet height of 46 feet 2 7/8 inches and would have an arch feature height of 54 feet 8 7/8 inches. Therefore, the Planning Commission could grant a Special Use Permit if it finds the conditions of section 3.07 of the Ordinance have been met and can be adhered to.
You are welcome to attend and express your opinions at the hearing or you may express your views in writing. The application and proposed plans for the special use permit will be available for review and inspection at the Township offices between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. and 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, excluding holidays.
