Logo Habitat For HumanityThe Habitat for Humanity Furnace Test & Tune Program has changed slightly. They are now able to offer a furnace replacement (for $40/month) to any homeowners that have an 80% or less efficient furnace (and meet the updated income guidelines) – limited number of spaces available! They have a goal of replacing 250 furnaces by the end of 2016 and will be promoting the program throughout the Township. Water heater replacement may be eligible as well.

Following enrollment in the program, Habitat will have an approved HVAC contractor schedule an initial visit to verify that your furnace is eligible for replacement. At this time, the contractor will also inspect your water heater, take measurements and note any out-of-the-ordinary circumstances that might affect the replacement.

PROGRAM RULES MAY BE CHANGING AFTER JANUARY 1, 2017 - APPLY NOW!

Logo YtownMichigan developer S.R. Jacobson has petitioned the Township Planning Commission and Township Board to amend the previously approved Lakewood Farms Planned Development (PD14) to allow for a revised mix of residential units. The proposed plan calls for the overall reduction in the number of multi-family units and increases the overall number of single-family residential units aligning with the goals of the Township's overall Master Plan. Overall the total number of residential units is proposed to be reduced from 415 to 392 total units. Due to this change in the approved mix of residential uses, the project and requested changes are carefully being considered by the Township Planning Commission and Township Board.

September 16: The project now moves to the Final Engineering phase of the review process prior to going through a final site plan or PD Stage II review and approval.
