The Elmwood Township Planning Commission is inviting the public to an Open House to provide input on the future development of the M-72 (E Traverse Highway) corridor in Elmwood Township.  

During the Master Plan update, there was discussion about development along the M-72 corridor from the City Limits west to the Elmwood Township line, just past Harry’s Rd.  Before moving forward, the Planning Commission would like public comment on types of development that should be allowed on M-72 (agricultural, residential, commercial, etc), how far off M-72 development would be allowed, and what the development should look like (types of construction: brick, wood, steel, etc).

Three open houses have been scheduled and will be held at the Elmwood Township Hall, 10090 E Lincoln Rd, Traverse City, MI 49684.

Please stop by to provide your input during one of the following sessions that is most convenient for you.

10am-12pm, Wednesday, December 13

4pm-6pm, Wednesday, December 13

1pm-3pm, Thursday, December 14
