Proposed changes: To L’Anse Township Zoning Ordinance
1. Change the typo in Section 3.15 I from 3.17 to 3.15.
SECTION 3.15 – LARGE WIND ENERGY CONVERSION SYSTEMS (LWECS)
1. Zoning and Setbacks
A Large Wind Energy Conversion System may only be located in areas in L’Anse
Township that are zoned Conservation and Recreation.
Any conflicts that may exist between this Section (Section 3.17 – Large Wind Energy
Conversion Systems) and any other sections of the L’Anse Township Zoning Ordinance,
this Section shall take precedence.
2. In order to reduce confusion and future conflicts remove Section 11.03 H
ARTICLE 11 – FOREST RESOURCE DISTRICT
SECTION 11.03 – SPECIAL LAND USES
H. Large WECS Installations (see Section 3.15)
11.03 H Recognizes the controlling language of 3.15 which clearly restricts LWECS to land that is zoned Conservation and Recreation.
Creating a conflict. Which by 3.15 I clearly has no validity.
