Muskegon County “Rec” Authority
Ken Johnson explained that we will be able to pool our resources together and that
individual “Rec” plans will not be necessary. A resolution needs to be approved if the
city is interested in participating. This type of Authority could lead to other funding
mechanisms. Any millage questions would have to be a vote of the people. We can also
withdraw from the Authority by resolution if they decide to ask to levy a millage and the
city does not want to.

Downtown Residential Zoning
Mike Franzak is reviewing current downtown residential zoning. Potential proposal to
change the rule of 66 foot lots will allow for smaller lot sizes if the living space meets the
minimum requirements. Jamie Pesch explained the form-based code. Public comments
were also received.

Moved by Hood, seconded by Johnson, to adjourn the meeting at 7:07 p.m.


                                                      Ann Marie Meisch, MMC – City Clerk
