TO: THE RESIDENTS AND PROPERTY OWNERS OF THE CHARTER TOWNSHIP OF RUTLAND, BARRY COUNTY, MICHIGAN, AND ALL OTHER INTERESTED PERSONS:
PLEASE TAKE NOTICE the Rutland Charter Township Planning Commission will hold a public hearing at its regular meeting on July 6, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. at the Rutland Charter Township Hall located at 2461 Heath Road, within the Charter Township of Rutland, Barry County, Michigan.
The items to be considered at this public hearing includes the following:
- The application of High Grade Materials Company for special land use approval of the proposed expansion of an existing sand/aggregate mining operation. The applicant is proposing to expand the existing sand/aggregate mining operation granted zoning approval in 2000. The total area of the proposed mining operation is approximately 230 acres on 3 parcels in land section 28 north of Goodwill Road and west of Hubble Road leased by the applicant and owned by Kenith and Carolyn Hubbell (parcel numbers 13-028-003-00, 13-028-002-00, and 13-028-001-00). The applicant is proposing to undertake the proposed expansion of the existing mining operation in four phases, each being 1-3 or 2-5 years in duration. The applicant proposes to use a portable dry screener on-site, but anticipates most sand/aggregate material will be removed from the site to be processed at an off-site location. The application states the proposed expanded operation will use the existing point of access to Goodwill Road, and no new structures or access points are proposed. The land use proposed by the applicant is permissible in the AG/OS Agricultural/Open Space Preservation District within which the subject property is located, subject to special land use approval and site plan approval. The Planning Commission will consider this application pursuant to the special land use approval standards specified or referenced in §220-20-3.A. of the Rutland Charter Township Code, including Item 1 of §220-20-7 which specifies additional specific standards for aggregate commercial excavations and processing; and any other applicable provisions of the Zoning Ordinance.
- Such other matters as may properly come before the Planning Commission at this meeting.
Written comments concerning the above matters may be mailed to the Rutland Charter Township Clerk at the Rutland Charter Township Hall at any time prior to this public hearing/meeting, and may further be submitted to the Planning Commission at the public hearing/meeting.
