Rich Street lighting district approved

Charles Jacobs pleaded to the Grand Haven Township Board on Monday that a street light is needed at the corner of Rich Street and 152nd Avenue for safety reasons. "The crime is bad, the speeding is bad,' said Jacobs, who has lived in his house on 152nd Avenue for 40 years. "My home is for sale because the paradise is gone.' The Grand Haven Township man is one of five property owners in that area who signed a petition for a street light special assessment district.

On Monday, the Township Board held a public hearing for the Rich Street special assessment lighting district, before approving a resolution to create the district and obtain cost estimates.

A second public hearing is scheduled for June 13.

During Monday’s hearing, Jacobs claimed he has been threatened multiple times by a migrant worker who lives in that area, and feels that a street light will provide more safety for him and his neighbors.
