Peninsula Township’s Planning Department works closely with township property owners on issues regarding Special Use Permits, Developments and Ordinance Amendments. Recommendations are based on township ordinances, which are driven by a comprehensive Master Plan, which is currently under a five-year review.

Two staff members – Michelle Reardon, Director of Planning & Zoning, and Claire Schoolmaster, Planning & Zoning Coordinator – help to implement proposed plans, along with seven Planning Commission members who make recommendations regarding Township policy to the Township Board.

Planning Commission duties include:

  • Write and update the Master Plan
  • Conduct public hearings on Special Use Permits and proposed Zoning Ordinance amendments
  • Review and recommend approval of site plans
  • Draft new zoning regulations
  • Make recommendations to the Township Board

Current Planning Commission members include:

  • Chair: Keith Leak
  • Vice Chair: Al Couture
  • Secretary: Donna Hornberger
