Pierson Township Board Officials previously passed a strong wind ordinance to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of their residents- BUT THE NEW BOARD IS NOW AMENDING IT TO CATER TO APEX!!!
Their wind ordinance was an example that we hoped ALL townships in Montcalm County would follow, but APEX is pushing to have it changed to accommodate the upcoming placement of industrial wind turbines UNLESS YOU GET INVOLVED TODAY!!! .
The Pierson Township Wind Ordinance prior to be amended can be found on their website below:
PLEASE ATTEND THE PUBLIC HEARING
June 3, 2021 at 7 pm at the Township Hall
to say NO to THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS that APEX had encouraged the Board to consider.
UPDATE TO THE WIND ORDINANCE
The Planning Commission at its February 2021 meeting added Wind Zones (approved by Board on Feb 16, 2021) to the Wind Ordinance (Feb version).
At the April 15 Planning Commission meeting they made a recommendation to the Wind Ordinance. The April recommendation IS NOT included in the above version.
The recommendations will be presented at the Public Hearing on June 3, 2021 at 7 pm at the Township Hall. If a large group attends, the meeting may be held outdoors for safety. After the Planning Commission Public Hearing the Ordinance will go before the Board for approval before adoption and publish.
If you have questions, please contact Orvin Moore at 616-302-5000 or stop by on a Tuesday at the Township office and talk to the Zoning staff.
