The Lapeer Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) has scheduled a public hearing on Monday, November 27th at 6:30 p.m. to discuss a variance request from Calvin Butrus and Fadi Syoufjy. This request concerns a deviation from the city's existing zoning ordinance, specifically in terms of the minimum number of parking spaces required.

Located at 1428 Imlay City Road, the site in question is the former Lapeer Ultimate Linings property, which falls under the I-1 Industrial zone. This zoning is a prerequisite set by both the City of Lapeer and the State of Michigan for marijuana cultivation operations. The building on the property spans approximately 6,150 square feet.

Under the current ordinance, marijuana cultivation facilities are required to maintain a minimum of 15 parking spaces. However, the applicants, Butrus and Syoufjy, are seeking a reduction in this requirement, proposing to provide just six parking spaces, thereby requesting a waiver for nine of the stipulated spaces.

The ZBA encourages those with an interest in this matter to participate in the upcoming public hearing. The meeting will take place in the Commission chambers located on the second floor of Lapeer City Hall.

For those unable to attend, written comments are being accepted until 5 p.m. on November 27th. Correspondence should be directed to the Lapeer City Hall, specifically addressed to the Zoning Board of Appeals at 576 Liberty Park, Lapeer, MI 48446.
