|Alpine Township Planner Sue Thomas with Rotary President and former Alpine Township Supervisor Sharon Steffens|
Alpine Township Planner Sue Thomas was the featured speaker at today's meeting of the Comstock Park Rotary at the Swan Inn today.
Sue talked about her role as Township Planner, and how she loves working with local municipalities. In addition to working with roads, sewer, water, sidewalks, building setbacks and the other kinds of functions that a planner would be involved in, she and the planning commission are also involved in the creation of ordinances. The recent medical marijuana ordinance that she created and was approved by the board is a model ordinance resulting in many communities asking to see it. The Planning Commission and her recently tackled the task of regulating the sale of sexually oriented material. As Township Planner, Sue is also very involved in rewriting the Township's Capital Improvement Program.
The Comstock Park Rotary meets at the lower level of the Swan Inn Restaurant every Thursday from 12:15 - 1:15 PM. Anyone interested in joining Rotary is encouraged to visit.
