Public Hearing


Please be advised the Village of Middleville Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a public hearing on Wednesday, October 10, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. or as soon thereafter as possible to consider an application for a variance on property located at N M-37 HWY (also known as parcel 08-41-022-022-10) to construct a gas station convenience store with a rear yard setback of 10 feet. The hearing will be held in the Council Chambers of the Village Hall, 100 E. Main Street, Middleville, MI 49333.

The application to be considered by the Zoning Board of Appeals seeks the following variance from the terms of the Village Code: Sec. 78-327(3)(a) which requires a minimum rear yard setback of 25 feet for buildings in the C-2 Highway Commercial District adjacent to lands in the R-3 Zoning District. The property is located in the Towne center PUD zoning district, requiring all non-residential uses are subject to C-2 zoning standards. The rear lot line shares a boundary with lands in the PUD subject to R-3 Multiple Family Residential zoning. The minimum rear yard setback is 25 feet from any residential zone, requiring the setback of 10 feet a variance of 15 feet. A gas station is permitted as a special land use in the C-2 District per the standards found in Sec. 78-553.

If the variance is approved by the Zoning Board of Appeals, the review and approval for the gas station as a special land use would be conducted by the Planning Commission at a later date, subject to the process described in Article IV of the Zoning Ordinance.

Any interested person may attend the public hearing to offer comments to the Zoning Board of Appeals.  A copy of the variance applications are available for inspection at the Village office, 100 E. Main St., during regular business hours, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Persons with special needs who wish to attend should contact the Village Clerk no less than 72 hours prior to the public hearing.
