Notice Regarding Proposed Mining Operations in Lyndon Township
 

 

Lyndon Township has received a special land use zoning request and an application for a Mineral Mining Operation (MMO) within our township. The proposed site is off M-52 near Green Lake.
The Planning Commission has  set the following deadlines:

     March 27, 2014 - 5pm: DEADLINE FOR THE PLANNING COMMISSION'S WRITTEN QUESTIONS TO BE SUBMITTED TO McCOIG.
    May 12, 2014 - 5pm: DEADLINE FOR McCOIG TO ANSWER WRITTEN QUESTIONS RECEIVED FROM THE PLANNING COMMISSION (deadline extended to this date due to large number of written questions)
     May 19, 2014 - 6pm: PUBLIC PLANNING COMMISSION MEETING ON THE McCOIG SPECIAL LAND USE REQUEST. This meeting is being held in Chelsea at the Washington Street Education Center.      
     July 28, 2014 – noon: DEADLINE FOR PUBLIC WRITTEN SUBMISSIONS (EXPERT REPORTS, STUDIES, AND COMMENTS) TO BE SUBMITTED TO THE TOWNSHIP ON THE McCOIG SPECIAL LAND USE REQUEST.
There is no "scheduled" vote date. When the commissioners are comfortable with the information,
reports, answers, public input and information from our professional team, etc., then and only then, will a motion be made to proceed with a vote.

The township & planning boards understand that this is a very sensitive issue for our recreational community. We have taken proactive steps in assembling professional planners, engineers and attorneys that specialize in this field.
Please understand that the township’s authority to regulate MMO’s is very limited.
Michigan State Legislators have greatly reduced township control by passing Act 110 of 2006 (125.3205). Under that law, the township must not "prevent the extraction, by mining, of valuable natural resources from any property unless very serious consequences would result from the extraction of those natural resources. Natural resources are considered valuable for the purposes of this section if a person, by extracting the natural resources, can receive revenue and reasonably expect to operate at a profit." The township’s authority is limited to "reasonable regulation of hours of operation, blasting hours, noise levels, dust control measures, and traffic that are not preempted by part 632 of the Michigan environmental laws," 1994 PA 451, MCL 324.63201 to 324.63223.
