Tuscola Area Airport Zoning Administrator's Annual Report
During the past year, no permits were issued though several sites were passed to the Zoning
Administrator by the State Aeronautics Board. Each site was determined to be either below the permit
height threshold or outside the airport footprint so no permit was necessary. The energy company
working in Gilford Township, made it a point to contact me and also sent documentation taken from
our application page to show that the towers would not require permits.
Vyse Administrative Services has continued to interacted with the State Aeronautics Board, the Tuscola
Airport Authority and other related agencies regarding wind energy sites and their relationship to the
Airport footprint.
The office handled several calls relating to airport zoning from both citizens and township officials.
These concerns were passed on to the appropriate officials.
It is expected that several applications will be received in 2013 as the wind energy sites move eastward
and into the conic and inner horizontal zones where the permit height threshold is lower. The inquiries
about these applications indicate that they will also require action by the Airport Zoning Board of
Appeals.
