Troy Zoning Board of Appeals - May 2017 Meeting Recap

City staff has posted the video recording of the 5/16/17 Troy Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA) meeting to YouTube. At the bottom of this post is the video. (The meeting actually starts shortly before the one minute mark of the video.)

There were two items on the agenda:
  • A variance for 3755 Euclid (to construct an addition to the house). The ZBA voted to approve the variance. I voted yes on the motion to approve the variance.

  • A variance for 71 Birchwood (to create two parcels). The ZBA voted to postpone action on this item to our next meeting.
We also had an excellent presentation by Troy City Attorney Lori Bluhm and Assistant City Attorney Allan Motzny on the laws that apply to ZBAs in Michigan.

Finally, congratulations to Glenn Clark and David Eisenbacher who were re-elected as ZBA Chair and ZBA Vice Chair respectively.

2017 Troy Foundation For Educational Excellence Grant Reception

As a Trustee for the Troy Foundation For Educational Excellence (TFEE), I look forward to attending our annual reception which recognizes the recipients of our grants. Below I've posted some photos I took at last week's reception.


At the reception, we also recognize a school grant applicant as TFEE Innovator of the Year. Below I've embedded a Troy School District video that recognizes the 2017 honoree, Emily Freeman and Connected Classrooms, Engaged Learners.
