** Township Board Approves
Distribution of Draft Master Plan **
On February 12, 2020 the Laketown Township Board approved the distribution of the draft township master plan. The draft mast plan is the culmination of nearly two years of work by the Laketown Township Planning Commission.
By approving the distribution of the plan the board allows the plan to be sent to our neighboring units of government and utilities that serve Laketown Township. The recipients of the notice then have 63 days to offer comments to the Planning Commission. After the 63 day window close the Planning Commission will review and consider the suggestions offered and adjust the plan as they desire. Then the Planning Commission will schedule a public hearing on the master plan. The date of that public hearing has not yet been set.
The draft plan can be viewed by clicking here.
To Laketown Township Residents:
Laketown Township has taken the unprecedented action of closing all township-owned buildings to the public for at least two weeks. This includes the township office, the Graafschap Fire Station, and the Felt Mansion.
Laketown Township takes this action with recognition of the Governor’s executive order and with an abundance of caution. We want to ensure the safety of our staff and our residents.
Laketown Township staff will continue communication via telephone, text and email. Also, we will be checking our drop box located outside the office front door.
Take care, be aware, and let’s make it through this unusual time together with prudent, calm, and responsible action.
