Brookfield trustees on Tuesday, April 24, created the Brookfield Township Zoning Commission, the group that will lead the effort to pass a November ballot referendum.

The commission held its first meeting immediately following the trustees meeting, electing officers, setting a meeting schedule and talking about how it will promote the zoning resolution.

The committee members are Todd Fencyk, who was elected chairman; Co-Chairman Tori Lucy; Secretary Noelle Honel; Treasurer Chuck Fizet; and member Shannon Hanley.

Alternate members are Cindy Matthews and Leyla Sartori.

Fizet was tasked with setting up a political action committee so the commission can raise funds for its promotion efforts.

The committee will next meet at 7 p.m. May 8 in the township administration building, 6844 Strimbu Drive, at which time members said they plan to adopt the zoning resolution. The resolution is expected to be the same one that failed by 19 votes last November.

Future meetings will be held at 7 p.m. the second Tuesday of the month in the administration building.

“I’m certainly glad you want to be a part of this,” said Trustee Gary Lees. “We’re kicking this off in really good stride. We just have to keep this going. You have to keep this going.”
