Model Ordinances for Township Pipelines

The following are examples of model  ordinances for townships wishing to modify their comprehensive plans to accommodate/regulate pipeline activity.  These models are examples and may not cover every contingency for each individual township, but are tools that each township may use to develop their own plans.

These examples were part of a presentation to the Northern Federation on October 14, 2014 made by John Gaadt, Environmental Land Use consultant.
