Pine Township reworking solar ordinance after failure to hold public hearing

The Pine Township Planning Commission is reworking a commercial solar ordinance which never went to a public hearing in 2020 and thus isn’t officially on the books.

“What we have going on with the solar draft is kind of unusual,” Chairman Scott Millard explained during the Planning Commission’s Oct. 10 meeting. “We did this back when COVID started, we passed it at the Planning Commission level. It went to the township board, but we don’t have a record where we had a public hearing.”
