Calumet Electronics’ expansion continues, what Vice President and Chief Operations Officer Todd Brassard calls the campus concept. To help facilitate that, the Calumet Township Board of Trustees voted to rezone several parcels of land from C1 (Commercial) to M1 (Manufacturing). Supervisor Timothy Gasperich says it allows for current plans and perhaps some future development as well.
Royale Manufacturing in Kearsarge asked for permission to rezone a parcel from R1 (Residential) to M1 (Manufacturing). The machine parts fabricator is looking to build a weld shop on a parking lot on the other side of Wolverine Street from their main building. Gasparich says there were no public comments against the idea during a recent planning commission meeting. He said all complaints regarding noise from the facility have been small in nature.
The Royale rezoning also passed.
The board also discussed a proposal to remove some seating at the Calumet Colosseum and install a Puck Pit to allow for a play area for younger children. Molly Rowe from the Calumet Lions Club will give a more extensive presentation at a later date.
