NOTICE OF ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS MEETING
The Royal Oak Zoning Board of Appeals will hold a regular meeting on Thursday, October 8, 2020 at 7:00 pm.
On March 10, 2020, Governor Whitmer issued Executive Order 2020-04, which declared a state-wide state of emergency due to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus that had not been previously identified in humans, can spread easily from person to person, and can result in serious illness or death. To mitigate the spread of COVID-19, to protect the public health, and provide essential protections to vulnerable Michiganders, it is crucial that all Michiganders take steps to limit in-person contact. The critical mitigation measures include social distancing and limiting the number of people interacting at public gatherings. Therefore, the Thursday, October 8, 2020, Royal Oak Zoning Board of Appeals meeting will be held electronically, in compliance with the Open Meetings Act and Executive Order 2020-154, as issued by Governor Whitmer on July 17, 2020.
