FAQs

Q: Why are you opposed to new development? This looks like a good idea.

A: We respect the rights of property owners to develop their property. We oppose bad development. We recognize the need to balance the rights of property owners to develop their land along with accounting for the aesthetic growth of a community.  The current plan does not bring a net value to our city. 


Q: Will we be able to save the Dairy Treat?

A: At this point, it looks like the site will be developed one way or another. We respect the rights of the property owners to develop the property, but hope to have a plan that benefits the neighborhood rather than only looking at short-term benefits for the developers. 


Q: Does my opinion really matter? 

A: Absolutely! Without input from the citizens of the City of Grand Haven, our Zoning Board will not know how we feel. The time to act is now! 


Q:What are the best ways to get involved?

A: Attend the meeting on May 15th at 7:00 PM at 11 N. Sixth Street, Grand Haven, MI 49417 if available. 


Write a letter to the Zoning Board of Appeals to let them know you would like to see the property development set back farther from the road to match the neighborhood.
