Meridian Township Planning Commission Approves Okemos Boardwalk Permit

MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - At the September 10th Planning Commission meeting Special Use Permit #18071 was approved.

The permit is for the construction of a pedestrian boardwalk in the floodplain over the Mud Lake Outlet Drain located along the east side of Okemos Road, south of Gaylord C. Smith Court, and north of the existing pathway along the east side of Okemos Road.

Commissioner David Premoe, in favor of the permit, said at the meeting, "This was very straightforward and I think we were pretty much all in agreement that it was a good thing. The community seems excited about it so, I don't see any reason not to move forward."

Commissioner Cordill also, was in favor of the project and stated that the project will connect the pedestrian link and more than fulfill the requirement of cut and fill in the wetland.
