The Keene Township Board adopted amendments to the Zoning Ordinance at their 3-8-22 meeting to the Solar Energy section and the Accessory Building section regarding cargo shipping containers. Click on "Amendment Notice" below for the full notice explanation. Click on "Solar Ordinance Amends" below for the adopted amendments. Click on "Accessory Bldg Amends" to review the cargo container adopted amendments.
*Note that the solar energy amendments are based on the previous solar energy ordinance that was adopted on 10-9-2018 because many homeowners want to put in a solar system and a more flexible process was preferred. A couple of changes were proposed for the commercial energy section for clarification but those were not adopted and the commercial section was sent back to the Planning Commission for additional work.

We need a new chairperson!
The Cemetery Committee was formed to update records, find burials, map the cemeteries, mark the new area of Pinckney Cemetery and put the records in electronic format. We have done a great deal of work and have much more to do. However, our chairperson has moved away and we need a new chairperson to lead our group. If you have cemetery interest, please contact the Township to join us as a worker or take charge as the chairperson. Email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
