Baker Lumber rebuilding plan to be reviewed next week

The D. Baker & Son Lumber family will soon know how soon they can begin rebuilding their lumber facility that was destroyed this past winter. The Grand Haven Planning Commission on April 12 is expected to hear a request for a site plan review for the reconstruction of the lumber shed that collapsed. "It is very similar to what they had before,' City Planner Kristin Keery said of the new structure. "It's a nice upgrade - they're basically rebuilding what they had.'

She said the new building will use updated materials in its construction — but the overall look will appear the same, with the roof skylights likely being a part of the rebuild.

Based on the proposal approved by the city’s Zoning Board of Appeals, the intention is to rebuild the 15,706-square-foot shed on the same footprint as the previous structure at 720 Pennoyer Ave.

Keery said planning commissioners will use the information relayed to them by the ZBA to help them review the site plan request on Tuesday.

The Planning Commission meets at 7:30 p.m. at City Hall, 519 Washington Ave.
