"As our township planner, Tim Johnson has been intimately involved with many different planning and zoning matters that have come before our Planning Commission. Some are routine, such as zoning ordinance amendments and master plans.  Others have been more complicated, such as our Wind Energy ordinance, which we adopted a couple of years ago, when there weren't many precedents to follow.  Tim helped us work through the technical and legal details of wind energy systems, which resulted in a thorough and well-researched ordinance that has been used by some neighboring townships as a guide for their own wind energy ordinances.  We find Tim to be very personable, hard-working, knowledgeable, responsive and attentive to details.  Tim has raised the level of professionalism in our township planning efforts.

As a Planning Commission, we interviewed several planners before making the selection of MainStreet Planning. With the selection of Tim, we are thankful that we found the perfect match for FruitlandTownship Planning Commission."
