Regarding what was determined by the Township, here are the minutes from the August meeting:
Discussion centered on three topics. First, are LP Tanks structures? Secondly, is a text amendment needed to require LP Tanks to meet setbacks like other structures. Lastly, can a resolution can be passed stating that from this point forward LP Tanks are to be required to adhere to regulations like other structures. Generators were suggested to be in the same category as LP tanks. It was agreed that LP Tanks were structures and the attorney was directed to develop a resolution for the next meeting.
from the September minutes:
Watershed Event Resolution: The township’s attorney was asked to develop a resolution regarding enforcement of setbacks for small structures such as propane tanks, generators, and similar structures.
rogerpa: If i understand your point, the State of Michigan has set the definition of a structure and the Township cannot change it. If the issue they are attempting to resolve is related to setback rules, they are free to establish setback rules that fit the Township needs. Correct?
Ok, this makes a lot more sense than the original posting. They are not including generators in the definition of a structure, they are applying structure zoning to generators. I can agree with that.Regarding what was determined by the Township, here are the minutes from the August meeting:
