Close vote keeps Enbridge's options open on dredge pad in Comstock

COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- The Comstock Zoning Board of appeals agreed that the sediment processing that Enbridge wants to do at their Industrial park is not Light Manufacturing, but on a 3 to 2 vote, they decided it’s similar enough to possibly qualify for a special use permit.

That returns the issue to the Planning Commission, which meets Thursday night.

It will be up to that panel to determine if it’s similar enough to issue the permit.

Larry Bell's brewery is located right next door and he says he will be anxious to see what the Township Planners decide on Thursday. 

 

The only person who spoke at the public hearing in favor of the idea of processing contaminated wastes at the site was the Attorney for Enbridge.
