Captain Barry Buschmann reported, "Because of the existing Streamlining Task Force (MCEDC) we’ve already got a good jump on the analysis. We have good people on our team from the local agencies, townships and cities (villages), utility companies, private business, etc.
We’ve had three primary meetings with the next one scheduled for Monday, April 30. We started to look at sites with good progress being made on defining infrastructure needs for each property. MGU has completed their analysis for all the proposed development sites, resources have been identified and team is pulling together all information.
The recent Planning & Zoning meeting in Dundee was another Streamlining Task Force effort which brought numerous communities together to discuss proactive efforts to encourage development and avoid unnecessary time delays."
Others discussions are taking place on: Michigan Redevelopment Ready Communities and getting more information relative to our pillar’s task responsibilities; the need for another MOU (memorandum of understanding) for the I-75 corridor communities to be sure we have good buy in; the need for a MOU with the owners of the properties that we are focusing on for future development.
"Currently, we are ahead of our timeline requirements and see no reason not to have our work done by the scheduled dates."
