A Special Township Board meeting is scheduled for Monday, Oct. 26, 12:30 p.m. (NOTE: This is a change from the previous meeting time of 1:00 p.m.) Read the full meeting agenda here.

Among other items, the meeting will cover a conflict with the assessor’s decision regarding a division of land owned by Peninsula Township Supervisor Pete Correia, as referenced in a letter to the editor from Anne Griffiths (read it here).

Anne sent along another note with further info on the issue:

The 2012 survey of the Correia property, incorporated into the Township’s approval of the Land Division Splits, confirmed that 565-946-40 was 19.22 acres, including several acres of road right of way.

The Land Division Ordinance, combined with Act 31 which it incorporates, requires a certified survey proving the parcel size, that is recorded, sets the legal descriptions of the resulting parcels and becomes part of the county land records. A prior or subsequent estimate of acreage that is not substantiated by a certified survey should not be material.

SO … 20.32 acres, but no new survey, how can that be????


SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
