The fate of a proposed RV park in Michigan’s Antrim County is yet to be determined, as no decision was made during a meeting on Monday.

According to a report, the developers applied for a special use permit for the park in Torch River Village.

The proposed site lies between torch River Road and Miller Road and will include 70 seasonal RV campsites as well as bathrooms and pavilions.

Milton Township Planning Commission met in November to discuss the permit. However, they didn’t vote to decide whether or not to approve it, as they wanted to hear more opinions from the community.

More than 100 people gathered at Elk Rapids High School, and 200 more joined Zoom on Monday to attend a public hearing on the issue.

Many pleaded with the commission to deny the application.

The developers have claimed that the park would boost the local economy. Others said that the park would not help Torch River Village residents in any way.

Many people argued that the developers’ plans don’t comply with certain township regulations.

However, the main concerns that people have mentioned are congestion in traffic and environmental effects.

“I’ve said before I think people deserve finality. We don’t like to feel like we’re delaying,” said Milton Township Planning Commission Chairperson Bill Heffertan. “And we’re really doing the best we can, given the unique circumstances that we’ve all run into the past couple of years.”

The decision wasn’t made regarding the application at the meeting on Monday.

The commission will meet again to discuss the issue on January 24 at 6 p.m.
