Morton Township to Evaluate Proposed RV Park Development in Canadian Lakes

Morton Township in Michigan is evaluating a new proposal for the development of an RV park in Canadian Lakes, according to a Pioneer report. The planning commission reviewed a rezoning request on April 3 and will have a public hearing on May 15.

The project, led by Bollman Investment Properties, initially faced a setback with the postponement of a public hearing initially scheduled for March 20, due to a scheduling conflict.  However, the company swiftly adjusted its strategy by withdrawing its original rezoning request and submitting a conditional rezoning request to Morton Township’s planning commission.

Representing Bollman Investment Properties, Brian Czarnecki of Freshwater Hospitality Consulting explained that, after consultation with the township zoning department, a conditional rezoning request was the more appropriate pathway for the project. This method allows the developers to propose conditions that align with the township’s zoning requirements.

The conditions set forth for the rezoning include strict compliance with the township’s use and district requirements, adherence to a submitted site plan layout, and the establishment of minimum campsite sizes. Specifically, the proposal outlines a minimum size of 2,100 square feet for modern campsites and 1,400 square feet for primitive campsites, with a minimum width of 35 feet for all sites.

Additionally, the owners commit to pursuing site plan approval within 90 days of the conditional rezoning approval, commencing construction within a year of site plan approval, and completing the project within 36 months.

In February, a public meeting was scheduled for March 20 for an RV park development in Morton Township. The development initiative proposes the rezoning of five specific parcels located at the intersection of Lake Drive and 105th Avenue, aiming to transition four parcels from AG2 to Campground classification, and one from R1 to Campground. 

Additionally, it sought a zoning variance to allow an increase in the number of campgrounds per acre from the existing three to six, with individual sites occupying between 2,300 and 2,500 square feet. The project aimed for a phased commencement, targeting the beginning of operations by the summer of 2025, with expectations to achieve full operational status by 2026, despite concerns from local residents regarding traffic, environmental impact, and the preservation of the region’s serene character.

When considering amenities for the RV park, it’s important to think about what would enhance the overall experience for visitors. How about a mini-golf course for some added fun?
