HOLLAND TWP., MI (WHTC) - Residents had their say last night, but no new action was taken on a proposed 10 thousand square-foot truck stop to be built on 13 acres off of Adams Street and I-196.
The Holland Township Planning Commission last month approved a tentative site plan submitted by Love’s Country Stop, but did not taken public comment at the time, citing an earlier public hearing that was sparsely attended. The township board subsequently changed the municipality’s public comment policy for all meetings. Love’s plans to close on the purchase of the property by the end of this month and to have the truck stop open by October of 2015.
The township planning commission last night did reject a special use permit request by Powderhorn Guns and Archery to allow hunting on 20 acres off of North Division Avenue, as the owners had wanted to establish a game farm on a flood plain zoned agricultural that is near residential properties. The rejection was due to safety and noise concerns.
