GREENVILLE – The Greenville Planning Commission meeting was canceled Thursday night after not having enough members to have a quorum.

Four commissioners were present and decided to wait 15 minutes for one more commissioner to show to make quorum. However, no one else showed.

Ron Blanding, Jack Corner, Brian Greene and Greg VanderMark were all present.

The commission was scheduled to host a public hearing regarding the master plan, but no one showed for the public hearing either.

Although there was no quorum, Tim Johnson of MainStreet Planning said the commissioners present still would have had to take comments from the public for the hearing.

Because the meeting was canceled and the public did not show for the public hearing, Johnson and Assistant City Manager Cameron Van Wyngarden will look into whether the public hearing will have to be posted again and be on the agenda at a later date.

While waiting 15 minutes, commissions talked amongst themselves about new businesses coming to Greenville, including Jet’s Pizza, the 57 Brew Pub – which recently began construction – and  Tim Horton’s and Coldstone Creamery, which will share one building.

Although Tim Horton’s and Coldstone Creamery officials have not commented on their new location planned for west Greenville, they did comment about its growth in Michigan in general.

“Tim Horton’s Café and Bake shop is strategic in how we expand and enter new markets,” said Senior Vice President of Operations Mike Meilleur. “We want to make sure we are growing in the markets were we have a presence to be at more points of convenience where our guests live and work – including throughout the State of Michigan.”

The next Greenville Planning Commission meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. June 28 at Greenville City Hall.
