Short-term Rental Registration

Short-term Rental Update
At the regular meeting of the East Bay Charter Township Board of Trustees on March 11, 2019, a decision was made to extend the initial licensing deadline date to July 15, 2019, from the original date of March 1, 2019. This will allow an opportunity to analyze the ordinance and its application process. Please continue to follow meeting agendas, minutes, and website posts regarding this topic.

Questions?
What if I have already applied and received my license? Applications which have been approved and issued a license will have their effective date amended to the new licensing deadline. By doing so, you will not lose any of your license’s one-year effective date. If you choose to request a refund and resubmit by the new deadline, please contact the Planning & Zoning Office and they can help you with this process.

What if I have already submitted my application materials, but haven’t yet been issued a license?  Planning & Zoning will keep your materials on file, licenses will be granted or denied based on the new licensing deadline date. By doing so, you will not lose any of your license’s one-year effective date. If you choose to request a refund and resubmit by the new deadline, please contact the Planning & Zoning Office and they can help you with this process.

What if I have not submitted my application materials yet? Take advantage of the additional time to gather information for a successful license application. If you have any questions on any material, please contact the Planning & Zoning Office. The registration site can be reached at this secure link.

Who can help me in Planning & Zoning and how do I reach them?  Leslie Couturier, Zoning Administrator, oversees the materials submitted for short-term rental applications. She can be reached at lcouturier@eastbaytwp.org or at (231) 947-8681, or by visiting the township hall at 1965 N. Three Mile Road. While you are always welcome to stop by, for guaranteed availability, appointments are appreciated to focus on your questions.

Community Garden
Seeking a Community Garden Volunteer Champion
 
Concept plans have been prepared, initial funding has been secured, and multiple partnerships have been established. Now, the East Bay Township Health Planning/Community Garden Committee is seeking an enterprising and energetic individual who is interested in becoming the Volunteer Champion for planned community garden at the Township Offices. This unpaid, but very appreciated individual will work with the committee; partners like 4-H, the library, SEEDS, MSU Extension, the Senior Center Network, and area schools; as well as other individuals, to move the planned community garden forward from concept to reality.   
 
If you think this volunteer position sounds like a fun challenge or have more questions, please feel free to contact Township Planner, Rick Brown at 231-947-8681 or at rbrown@eastbaytwp.org. East Bay Township residency is NOT required, but previous  organizational experience, a passion for working with others, and a desire to help make this gardening dream come true, are strong attributes being sought.  
 
We look forward to hearing from potential candidates!
