Portage youth organize Green-A-Thon to celebrate Earth Day Saturday
The annual Portage Green-A-Thon will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Celery Flats. PORTAGE, MI – Portage youth band together to celebrate the environment at the annual Green-A-Thon 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the Celery Flats Historical Area, 7335 Garden Lane.Portage students who are members of the Youth Advisory Committee organize the Green-A-Thon, which this year will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Celery Flats.Tom Haroldson/Special to the Kalamazoo Gazette The Portage Youth Advisory Committee, in cooperation with the Portage Environmental Board and Portage Park Board, is again hosting the free, community event, one of several celebrations in the area for Earth Day on Saturday.The Green-A-Thon has been a successful annual festival featuring music, games and representatives from local organizations and businesses providing education about environmental products and activities. There is also a chance to volunteer for “green” causes and to meet with environmental groups. Along with a variety of other free items there will also be free seedlings of trees available.The Portage Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) was created by the Portage City Council in the spring of 2008 to give Portage students an opportunity to share their ideas and participate in local government. The group has proven to be so successful that there are more students wanting to be members than there are positions to fill.One of the reasons why the YAC has been such a hit is its organizing of the Green-A-Thon, members have said. The event gives them a chance to raise awareness of environmental issues and to provide opportunities to become more ecologically friendly. The event will go on rain or shine. For more information, go to or contact Adam Herringa, deputy city clerk, at 269-329-4511 or Tom Haroldson covers Portage, Vicksburg and Schoolcraft for MLive/Kalamazoo Gazette. Contact him at

Portage council OKs rezoning that clears way for new retail center in front of Lowe's
The city of Portage has approved rezoning and conceptual plans for a new retail center in front of Lowe's developed by Roger Hinman. PORTAGE, MI — A multi-million-dollar commercial development in front of Lowe’s has the green light from Portage and is expected to begin construction soon.Portage city limits signs show the city's 50th anniversary motto: A Natural Place to Move.  Earth Fare, an organic foods store, is taking that slogan to heart when it comes to a new retail center at Kilgore Road and South Westnedge Avenue later this year.Tom Haroldson/Special to the Kalamazoo Gazette Rezoning and a conceptual plan for the project at Kilgore Road and South Westnedge Avenue were approved by the Portage City Council Tuesday for developer Roger Hinman, who built Lowe’s 13 years ago.First up for the new commercial retail center will be Earth Fare, an organic food store that is making Portage its first Michigan location. A site plan for the store has already been approved by the Portage Planning Commission and construction will begin this spring, officials said.Andy Wenzel, representing the Hinman Company, which is building the commercial center, said the company is excited about continuing development of that area which began with the Lowe’s project in 2001.“We’re creating 70 to 80 jobs and $3 million in development,” Wenzel told the council, referring to the Earth Fare organic store. “It’s a gateway project and the gateway to the city.”Future projects could include a retail store, bank and coffee house or drive-through restaurant. The market will dictate when those other buildings are built, Wenzel said.The council approved rezoning properties at 531 W, Kilgore, 605 W, Kilgore, 5024 S. Westnedge Ave. and 5036 S. Westnedge to commercial planned development. Not part of the project is the Speedway gas station at the corner of Kilgore and Westnedge and the Riviera Maya restaurant.The driveway at the restaurant, though, has proven to be a concern for some Planning Commission and City Council members. Left turns will be allowed at that driveway from Westnedge, which some feel could pose potential safety problems on that heavily traveled area near the intersection of Kilgore and Westnedge.Vicki Georgeau, Portage community development director, said the city staff will keep a close watch on that driveway and if congestion or safety issues are found changes could be made. Changes could include anything from signal modifications at Kilgore-Westnedge to extending the medium divider on Westnedge.The new retail center will also be accessible from the existing Lowe’s driveways, a new right-in, right-out drive off Kilgore and from the nearby Marketplace Drive off Westnedge.Councilwoman Patricia Randall asked if there was any consideration given to the new development’s impact on St. Monica school and church across the street and the nearby Hackett Catholic Central High School. Both foot and vehicular traffic from those two schools could conflict with traffic for the new development, she said.Georgeau and Wenzel said that they did consider that, with the development director indicating the peak traffic from the schools would be different hours than the retail center. Wenzel added that the company talked with both schools and they did not have issues with the new development.“I have kids going there (to the school) and I don’t want to see a traffic problem, either,” Wenzel said.He added that Hinman will be constructing a sidewalk along Kilgore to connect with sidewalks already in that area. The retail center will also have internal sidewalks and will be accessible for both people walking or riding bikes or driving.The project was approved subject to three conditions that included modifications involving building setbacks, minimum lot area and minimum parking spaces; continued monitoring of the Riviera Maya driveway on Westnedge; and the city of Kalamazoo’s OK of the Kilgore driveway, which Kalamazoo has already approved. Kalamazoo has jurisdiction over Kilgore Road while Portage controls Westnedge that is within the Portage city limits.

With no plea deal yet, former Vicksburg principal Greg Tibbetts still set to go on trial April 15
A settlement conference Friday failed to result in a resolution in the case of Greg Tibbetts, which means the former Vicksburg Middle School principal is set to go on trial April 15 on sex abuse and embezzlement charges. KALAMAZOO, MI -- A settlement conference Friday failed to result in a resolution in the case of Greg Tibbetts, which means the former Vicksburg Middle School principal is set to go on trial April 15 on sex abuse and embezzlement charges. Greg Tibbetts There will be another meeting April 14 between Tibbetts' attorney and the Kalamazoo County Prosecutor's Office for a final attempt to reach a plea agreement, said Carrie Klein, Kalamazoo County chief assistant prosecutor. 'If there's a plea, it will be then,' she said. Tibbetts' attorney is using a defense of criminal insanity in the case. Tibbetts was arrested in fall 2012 on 13 counts of criminal sexual conduct for allegations involving a former student. He also is facing a felony charge of embezzling of $1,000 to $20,000 from the school district. The case involves an alleged relationship between Tibbetts, 43, and a teenage boy who is a former Vicksburg Middle School student.A police investigation found evidence that Tibbetts supplied alcohol and expensive gifts to the boy as part of a two-year relationship that turned sexual in nature, according to an eight-page report by a Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Office investigator.The investigation report suggests the two had not yet embarked on a physical relationship, but Tibbetts was using a school-owned iPad and cellphone to exchange sexually explicit messages and images.Tibbetts resigned from his Vicksburg job in November 2012.

Developer of proposed Portage gas station withdraws project; will instead build retail strip center
The developer of a proposed gas station at the former Centre Street Market has withdrawn the project. PORTAGE, MI – The developer of a proposed gas station at the former Centre Street Market on East Centre Avenue has withdrawn the project after a swarm of opposition from area residents and concerns from city staff.The former Centre Street Market on East Centre Avenue is the proposed site of a new gas station, convenience store and small restaurant. In the background is the next-door Otis Montessori Academy.File photo Don Ziemke, of Great Lakes Convenience, who had proposed a five-pump gas station and convenience store at 710 and 732 E. Centre Ave., sent a letter to the Portage Department of Community Development indicating “I have decided to withdraw the pending request for a special exception use permit to operate a convenience store and gas station…” at the site.Instead, Ziemke said, “I have decided to develop the property with an 8,000 square foot retail strip center which will include a restaurant and a drive-through component.”He said he has started the planning stages for the new project’s site plans and will be filing the request with the city. That project will need the Portage Planning Commission site plan approval, though it will not require a special use permit because it is zoned for business.Ziemke did not provide details of his new project, and could not be reached for a comment.His request for a gas station and convenience store – a small restaurant with drive-through was pulled from the proposal weeks ago -- was set for a continued public hearing at the 7 p.m. Thursday Planning Commission meeting. That hearing had been adjourned three times at his request after city staff and residents raised concerns about a gas station at that 2.2-acre site. The concerns centered on safety, increased traffic and overall negative neighborhood impact issues including noise.The property is also next door to the Otis Montessori Academy child care and preschool, which also concerns residents and the school officials.Jamie Crankshaw, representing Otis Montessori, said that the school had tried to remain neutral on the gas station proposal, but like others was concerned about traffic and safety as if affected the children. She praised Ziemke for working with the school and said he had contacted them to let them know he was changing his plans, though he did not specify exactly what he was planning.“We’re glad Don is still going to be our neighbor and that he is choosing a different project for the property,” Crankshaw said Friday.Ziemke in his letter to the city March 11 thanked the Planning Commission “for its consideration of my (gas station) project” and asked the city staff to let the commission know at its Thursday meeting that he was withdrawing it.A community development department report said city staff had numerous problems with the gas station, including that it “is not consistent with the Future Land Use Map or specific Land Use/Development and Housing goals and objectives contained in the Comprehensive Plan…is also not consistent with the General Standards of Review for Special Land Uses… in regards to promotion of the public health, safety and welfare; compatibility with adjacent land uses; traffic generation and associated adverse impacts to adjacent properties and safety on East Centre Avenue. “The report further said that “It appears that various aspects of the gasoline station development will generate additional adverse external effects including noise that are likely to extend beyond the property line, which is not consistent with specific standards for a gas station Special Land Use.”Some Planning Commission members at the March 6 meeting also indicated they would not likely approve a special use permit for the gas station. “I can’t believe there is anything that would be presented to us that would qualify for a special land use permit for the sale of gas,” said commission member Allan Reiff.
