City, township officials move forward with Robbins Road plan

Grand Haven city and township officials are moving along in making the Robbins Road corridor plan part of their respective master plans. Grand Haven City Council approved the Robbins Road plan Monday night with a 3-2 vote. City councilmen Mike Fritz and Dennis Scott voted against the plan, citing concerns about the re-striping of Robbins Road from a four-lane to a three-lane road. "I think we have a pretty good handle on the direction of this plan,' Lazdins said.

In the plan, the access management portion has the corridor broken into three phases: U.S. 31 to Ferry Street, Ferry to Griffin Street, and Griffin to 168th Avenue.

It would allow for enhanced movement between property, driveway closures and shared entrances for certain businesses along that stretch of road.

In Grand Haven Township, officials are taking the proper steps to incorporate the Robbins Road corridor plan into the township’s master plan.

On Monday, the township’s Planning Commission unanimously decided to begin the process of amending the corridor plan as part of the township’s master plan.
Township attorney Ron Bultje suggested that the township include the Robbins Road plan with the master plan — especially if the city is doing the same — in the event that the township faces a lawsuit with a developer.
