Minutes from April 28, 2022:  Nancy made a motion to approve the minutes from the April 28, 2022 meeting, seconded by Robert.  All approved.

Business:  Jason McCarthy attended the meeting with final draft of the Master Plan handed out for discussion.   Jason went over the process once we approve the final draft and present this plan to the Township Board.  Once the Board approves this plan, the 63-day review process begins where the plan is available to the community and other entities to read (internet or hard copies available), and comment on.  The comments are collected and presented at a public hearing where the Master Plan can be adopted.

We went over the new segment of Future Land Use and Zoning Plan.  Questions were presented with Jason explaining the descriptions of the zoning districts of Arvon Township.  Another new part was the Climate Resiliency and Future Land Use Planning.  We went over this and decided to take this home for each of us to review and meet again on Thursday, May 26, 2022, to see if this fits our purposes.

The maps were reviewed as well, representing the zoning districts.

Adjournment:  Robert made a motion to adjourn, seconded by Nancy.  Meeting adjourned at 7:30 p.m.
