Meridian Township board votes against rezoning

On Oct. 2, the Meridian Township Board voted 6-1 denying Jim Giguere’s request to rezone approximately 7.36 acres of residential property. Their decision means that no more than seven homes can be built off Hulett Road, near the Sanctuary Neighborhood. 

Township Treasurer Julie Brixie said that her vote against the rezoning request was not a difficult decision to make. “The current zoning on the land is consistent with our future land use map,” said Brixie. “The requested zoning would not serve the best interests of the community.”

Alina Gorlick, a 10-year Meridian Township resident, said she felt extremely happy about the board’s decision.
