Mich. RV Park Plan Tabled Until November
Tensions were high during a discussion between attorneys regarding a proposed campground at the Sept. 11 Oceola Township (Mich.) Planning Commission meeting.
First Development Companies hopes to build a combined 515 RV sites and cabins on the existing Chemung Hills Golf Club just northeast of Howell, but township officials say the submitted site plan is too confusing and outdated, according to the Livingston Daily.
Officials claim the confusion stems from a bevy of correspondence – the project has undergone several major and minor revisions since it was first introduced in April – and an incomplete site plan.
The developer’s attorney, Bob Davis, said he feels his plan is up to date, even though it has undergone several major changes.
During the meeting, tensions mounted between Davis and township attorney Neal Nielsen. Davis and Nielsen got into an argument over what Nielsen called “a hodge-podge” of letters and plans.
”I wouldn’t tell an applicant who is taking away things from plans at the request of the board to start poking fun at their plans,” Davis told Nielsen.
Nielsen said he wasn’t making fun of the project and that “this board hasn’t said anything yet because this board doesn’t have the package upon which to base a decision.”
Davis then told the planning commission he would return with an updated site plan if members guaranteed him approval. That didn’t happen.
Ultimately, Davis asked to table the item to the November meeting.
“We’re going to accommodate and agree to all the issues to the best of our ability,” Davis said.
