The Planning Commission motioned to withdraw the rezoning of land request first initiated in Meridian Township at the meeting on Aug. 11. The requested rezone of township-owned land is approximately 16 acres from C-2, commercial, to RR, rural residential, located on the east side of Saginaw Highway between Lake Lansing and Newton roads. The Planning Commission initiated a rezoning of some of one of the Township properties, which is a land preserve. The commission held a public hearing where the Land Preservation Advisory Board met and discussed the rezoning and was opposed to it.
