Would’ve, I was born in Charlevoix a while back.   Left Michigan 32 years ago for parts west.  Thank you for reinforcing in my mind that I made a correct decision.  

Les, you are a wise man.  The “progressives” have taken over control of the townships around here.

Give me a call on my cell number or send a pm. We can discuss your issue. It appears that the County ordinance is taking away some of your property rights without compensation by placing "seen area" or "view shed" restrictions on your property. I remember your property as being hilly high ground, but if you haven't drastically cleared it, you should be able to meet the 60 sq.ft. BA that is being required. Are you planning to build on the property?

I'm going on age 87 and, yes, have retired as the body gives out, but I can give you the name of the Consulting Forester in Traverse City who took over my business a few years ago.
