Overview: At the Howell Township Zoning Board meeting on February 12th, 2024, several decisions were made regarding two property developments which raised discussions on compliance with zoning regulations and the impact on residential life. The board approved the application of NVR Inc Ryan Homes for bulk variance to install new entrance signs for a residential subdivision, with conditions to ensure township compliance. Additionally, the application for an extensive renovation and expansion of a residential property sparked debate over its dual residential and commercial use, eventually leading to approval with specific conditions aimed at mitigating the impact on the community.
