Two meetings are scheduled for the Planning Commission Committee on Master Plan Implementation and Zoning Rewrite. The meetings will take place at the Peninsula Township Hall and center on:
- Nov. 9, 2016, 6 p.m. – Non Agriculture Goals and Actions
- Nov. 17, 2016, 2 p.m. – Agriculture Goals and Actions
The first committee meeting was held on Oct. 3, 2016. The bulk of the round-table discussion was to begin the task of going through the Master Plan “Goals and Actions,” discussing the question of “What needs to be done and by whom to accomplish the Actions in the Master Plan.” We discussed the Actions under these Areas of Concern:

At the Oct. 3 committee meeting, which was well attended, we touched on about one-quarter of the Actions. The second meeting on Nov. 9 will continue with the Non-Ag Actions. Isaiah Wunsch (my Co-Chair) will be away for that meeting, but will help lead the third meeting on November 17 on Ag items.
Both meetings will continue the round-table format and have been scheduled at different times of the day to allow more to attend at least one of these meetings. We welcome all who might wish to attend.

A NOTE FROM JANE: 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 like the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and magazines like 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 of course, I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my 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 Old Mission Peninsula.
