OLD BUSINESS

1-96 Interchange Improvements/Studies & Loop Road Mixed Use Planned Unit Development

Shea Charles, Manager City of Howell gave a presentation on the I-96 interchange improvements, the proposed loop road and the Planned Unit Development (PUD) project accessed via the loop road.

The City of Howell has been involved in the conceptual review of the improvements to the D-19 corridor from Pulford Street to the West bound entrance to I-96.  This will include two round-a-bouts, one at Pulford Street and D-19 and the second at the West bound entrance to I-96.  The project will start in the spring of 2007 and should take approximately six months.

Bids for the loop road will go out this August and construction should begin the fall of 2006.

The PUD proposal includes 460 residential units and industrial units.  The developer would like the first residential model home to be completed when the loop road is completed.

Hotel demolition/redevelopment

At this point the City of Howell does not know what the owner of the property is going to develop on the now vacant land.

Marion Township residential developments and the impact on D-19

John Enos and the Planning Commission members summarize the upcoming developments including Premier Farms (2,000 units) and the residential development proposed for the Marion Oaks Golf Course.  The impact on local roadways was discussed.

Both the Marion Township Planning Commission and the City of Howell Planning Commission members agreed a joint planning committee would be in the best interest of both communities.  The City of Howell will choose their members at the next regular meeting.  The Marion Township Planning Commission will choose their members at the July 25, 2006 meeting.  The joint committee will meet is six months.

John Lowe would like to work with the City of Howell to make sure the improvements made to the north and south of the I-96 interchanges are compatible.

Paul Streng would like to see MDOT install lighting at the entrance and exit ramps.  There have been numerous accidents and he believes lighting would improve the situation.  If Marion Township and the City of Howell formed a joint planning committee they may have more of an impact on MDOT.

The committees would like to invite Senator Garcia to the next meeting to see if he would be willing to work with the communities for improvements.

Paul Streng noted the number of Marion Township parcels that are surrounded by City of Howell property.  He would like the two communities to come up with a strategy to see what the homeowners can do when their septic systems fail.

When the Marion Township property north of I-96 was transferred to the City of Howell , Marion Township lost the property designated for Mobile Home Park (MHP.)  Marion Township asked John Enos to find out the process for contiguous communities to use one community MHP as both of their designations.

NEW BUSINESS

CALL TO THE PUBLIC
