ST MICHAEL'S 
Zoning


The Zoning lines changed from the 1990 map to the current on .  It is possible  that this happened in a Township wide rezoning in 1996 -- no clear data yet

  THE 2 ZONES St Michael's is zoned CS -Community Service   (click here for the whole thing )  on the left and R1 Residential  (click here) where 1 single family residence  per acre is allowed on the right . A portion of the section on the right was designated   Flood Plain Conservation District   on the 1990 plan . That is another whole kettle of fish - so click here for that .   But we still have some uncertainty   how the original P zoning  got to be CS and when and how much of it is CS ....

 THE EXCEPTIONS GRANTED     They had to make an exception  from the code for the Community Service  Building to be built in the R1  district  and for the expansion to be more than what was allowed ( only 25% more than what existed at the time of the granting of the non-conforming use was allowed .   And an exception was made to build a  Church/Place of Worship CS use on an R1 residential lot -  and the plot plan now (2008 and on ) makes a clear designation of CS to the left of the land . We don't yet have the minutes from the 1990 meeting  to know if an exception was made or if it was rezoned .  But why would the line have changed?

  WHERE ARE  THE ZONING LINES ?    see the dotted line Top to bottom  dividing the map into left and right portions . From the point nearly in the middle of Pond View Rd  go straight back to the  point nearly in the middle of 1078 Kipling's backyard line on the 2009 Plan below.  The  left side with the parking lot and the log church was zoned Community Service .   The right side with the old parish hall, the current masonry dwelling and the new planned dining/banquet hall  was/is zoned  R1 ( residential ) .  The waiver was granted in 2008 to build the CS building in the R1 side and to expand more than 25%
Then look below to the 1990 plan to see the zoning line which this time is further to the left and cuts through the new log church . It is possible ( maybe likely )  that this happened in a Township wide rezoning in 1996 -- no clear data yet



Above  - the line is to the right of the church and comes down to the left edgeof the driveway entrance

Below the line cuts through the church and ends quite far to the left of the driveway
