Hello all! We have had many new property owners in our Township this year, and would like to remind everyone that a Zoning Compliance Permit is necessary for any new structure on your property. Our zoning fee schedule has been updated as of July 1, 2023 and can be found below. I am also the individual who handles any Miscellaneous Debris complaints. Feel free to reach out to me to start that process. There are some current cases that the Township is working on, so if you have any questions, I will be able to answer them for you.
Our Planning Commission meets the second Monday of every month at 6:00pm, at the Ely Township Hall. This is the best way to express any concerns or ideas for the Township you may have. The Planning Commission is also holding monthly work sessions at 6:00pm before each monthly meeting to discuss edits and changes to the Ely Township Master Plan. Residents are welcome and encouraged to attend. They will be holding 2-3 Public Hearings before a new Plan is adopted. Items that are being reviewed are the zoning maps, plans for road repairs, and trends of housing in the township. They are also discussing joining the Iron Ore Heritage Trail and possible millage to do so. We currently have openings on the Zoning Board of Appeals for anyone interested, visit the Township office for more information and to fill out an application.
I hold office hours on the first and third Monday of each month from 10:00am-2:00pm. If you would like to set up an appointment you may contact me via the email address below.
Erin Bertucci, Zoning Administrator, MCP
