“My determination,” he wrote Fleming, “is that the structure is not considered a non-conforming sign, there-fore will never be able to be used for a sign in the future. “It is not known whether the sign is a dangerous structure; the township may be willing to get a circuit court opinion on this matter if needed,” he continued. “Site plan review at the planning commission would analyze all structures and site conditions of the property. It is likely that the structure could be looked at negatively for a future applicant. Refusing to take the structure down would only handcuff future development on the property.

Saugatuck Township wants the owner of a dilapidated former Marathon gas station sign pole near the Douglas freeway entry to clean up his act.

Zoning administrator-planner Steve Kushion wrote Fleming Brothers Oil Co. president Thomas Fleming April 14 the township is requiring action to eliminate the structure and remove concrete barricades also stored on the 2900 Blue Star Hwy. site.

Local residents and officials have complained for years about the sign, which stands near Int. 196 Exit 36, being an eyesore.
