Meeting History

Dec 5, 2017 7:00 PM  Board of Trustees Regular Meeting

Trustee Colaianne gave an brief overview of the Special Use Permit #17-016, Bella Vita Senior Living Facility on the north side of M-59, east of Clark Road, where the current driving range is located. The Planning Commission recommended the approval of the Special Use Permit as well as the Sight Plan and the issue before the Board is to consider the Special Land Use application. There was a good summary of the conditions in the Board package and the applicant has basically met these conditions. The applicant was present to provide any additional overview or to answer any questions the Board may have regarding the application.

"Move to approve Special Land Use application #17-016 based on the findings and conditions outlined in the Planning Director's recommended action":

1. The Planning Commission recommended approval of the proposed Special Use Permit, a nursing home care facility, at its regular meeting on November 16, 2017.

2. The Township Board has determined the proposed special use, a nursing home care facility, meets the intent and purposes of the Ordinance as well as the specific Special Use standards outlined in Section 6.6., as the nursing home is a residentially-related use which is permitted as a special land use in the CA -Conservation Agricultural zoning district.

3. The Township Board has determined the proposed use enhances the natural environment with the incorporation of a diverse mix of landscape material as part of the project, which will also be a benefit to future land uses in the area.

4. The Township Board has determined the proposed use is compatible with the Hartland Township Comprehensive Plan, which designates this area as Multiple Family Residential. Nursing care facilities are permitted as a special land use in single-family and multiple-family zoning districts.

5. The Township Board has determined the proposed use is adequately served by essential facilities and public services. Public water and sanitary sewer will be extended to serve the proposed facility and has the potential to serve future expansions of the use. The Planning Commission has determined the proposed use is adequately served by an existing roadway, being Highland Road, and the Fire Authority has no objections.

6. The Township Board has determined the proposed use is of low impact to the community and will not be detrimental, hazardous, or disturbing to the existing or future neighboring uses, persons, or the public welfare. The low intensity use serves as a buffer between potential commercial/offices uses along Highland Road and adjacent single-family zoning to the north and east.

7. The Township Board has determined the proposed use will be an economic asset to the community and will not create additional requirements at public cost for public facilities as the proposed facility will be privately run and maintained.

Approval of the Special Use Permit is subject to the following conditions:

1. The proposed nursing home care facility shall obtain Site Plan approval and be maintained in compliance with the approved Site Plan, as well as all associated conditions.
