The Grand Haven Township Board on Monday unanimously approved a request to rezone 25 acres on 152nd Avenue from planned unit development to agricultural.
Jennifer McVoy and Jason Bergeron said they plan to purchase the property now that the rezoning has been approved in order to raise horses on it.
McVoy said she has been showcasing horses since she was 8 years old and exhibits them regularly at national competitions. She and Bergeron currently own five horses, and said they would like to raise them and five more on the 25-acre-property.
They also plan to build a home on the property — which is just south of the Hunter’s Woods subdivision.
The sale of the property is contingent on the rezoning, they said.
“We’re pleased obviously that the zoning’s changed,” McVoy said after Monday’s meeting. “The next step is to make the purchase and start planning for building.”
McVoy said they hope to begin building next summer.
The Township Board held a second public hearing for the rezoning request prior to its unanimous approval.
