My friends and I want to start a housing co-op. We have already picked out a property and have enough money between us for a loan. How would we go about the rest?

Can local municipalities require Special Use Permit for Farm Markets, U-Pick opertation and CSA or are they only allowed to regulate these with site plan review for the drainage, signage, parking and safty aspects?
Is there specific rules about About lot line adjustments adjustments with property divided by a road.? Some townships seem to count one parcel for land division even if it is divided by the road. Other townships don't seem to agree. Is there a specific location to find all the rules regarding land division?

Im buying a parcel from the property owner next to my property we have taken .6 acres off from that parcel. We where going to add the .6 acres to my parcel and do a line adjustment. I was told by a gentleman that this is a split and not a line adjustment because there is a building on this parcel. We have plans to remove the building well.

Can you be forced to speak at a podium and on camera rather than at you chair in a township meeting?
I recently went before my township zoning board to request a split of my 10 acre parcel. The parcel is 330 x 1340 and zoned A2. Several years ago the Township changed the ordinance to reduce the amount of road frontage required from 330ft to 165ft. I had a survey to split the front corner 2.5 acres thus having 2 parcels of 2.5 and 7.5 acres both with 165 ft of frontage. The zoning board denied my request for a split because the 7.5 acre parcel created violates the 4 : 1 rule in the Michigan Public Land Act.
My question is: Doesn't the zoning board exist to grant variances to The Public Land Act? They claimed that they are unable to go against this Law. Is this correct?
If a conditional land use has some requirements. What happens when those requirements are violated? Does it fall under zoning ordinance violation notice or civil infraction?
