Peninsula Community Library continues to move closer to its goal of building a new library on the Old Mission Peninsula. As director Vicki Shurly mentioned here, the fundraising campaign now stands at nearly $1.8 million in gifts, pledges and expected donations. Learn more about the new library and how to make a donation here.
The Peninsula Township Planning Commission has now scheduled a public hearing for Jan. 22, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Peninsula Township Hall, 13235 Center Road.
At the meeting, the commission will hear public comments about the proposed new library and consider a special use permit which would allow construction of the library at the northwest corner of Island View Road and Center Road.
The property is located within the A-1 (Agricultural) Zoning District, and a public library may be permitted in the A-1 Zoning District subject to special use permit approval.
A copy of the proposed Special Use Permit Application may be viewed at the Township Planning office between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
All interested persons are invited to attend this public hearing. If you are unable to attend, written comments may be submitted to the Peninsula Township Clerk, 13235 Center Road, Traverse City, Michigan 49686, no later than 12 p.m. on Jan. 22, 2018.
If you are planning to attend this meeting and are in need of reasonable auxiliary aids or services, contact Peninsula Township Clerk, Joanne Westphal, (231) 223-7321, or email [email protected].
