Blog: NO TO NARCONON: Birch Run Township's Zoning Board of Appeals Denies Zoning Interpretation For Proposed "Narconon Birch Run"; 4-0 Vote Halts Greg Hetzer's Effort To Seek Special Use Permit - 2019-03-27
The Birch Run Township's Zoning Board of Appeals voted 4-0 during last night's meeting to deny a zoning interpretation requested by Greg and Lori Hetzer, effectively ending the Hetzers efforts to open a Narconon-based residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility in their seven-bedroom township home.
Hetzer, along with his wife, Lori, were featured in Rod Keller's report on Tony Ortega's Underground Bunker last November. The Hetzers were represented during last night's meeting by Flint, Michigan, attorney Mark J. Newman. In addition, Saginaw attorney Frank J. Keating of Braun Kendrick represented Narconon, and Narconon Ojai's current Executive Director, Fabian Padro, were in attendance.
