Township May Create Permits For Campgrounds

Revisions to an ordinance to permit campgrounds in Michigan’s Lyon Township are still a work in progress, according to WHMI.

The municipality’s zoning ordinance currently includes campground standards, but does not actually permit them. The township received a request last fall that sought to amend the ordinance so campgrounds would be added under Special Land Uses in Residential-Agricultural Districts, along with variances to the current standards.

The request came from Wildlife LLC., who purchased property north of Haas Lake Park and was reportedly contemplating seeking approval for a campground on the parcel.

The request for the proposed text amendment failed once before, but was reconsidered by the Lyon Township Planning Commission Monday (Jan. 8).

At the meeting, officials reiterated the sole purpose of the discussion was to amend the ordinance, staying clear of Wildlife’s rumored plans for the property.
