FROM PROBATIONER TO PROPERTY DEVELOPER: Disgraced Former Veterinarian Bruce Langlois Seeking Approval To Develop 28-Acre Plot Along Prime Flat River Waterfront


Some people just come bouncing back, like that old-school clown punching bag with the sand in its ass.

Bruce Langlois, the Lowell, Michigan former veterinarian who plead guilty March 5, 2019 to one count of Unauthorized Practice of Veterinary Medicine, is scheduled to appear tomorrow, Monday, August 19, at a public hearing at the Vergennes Township Hall near Lowell, Michigan.

At the hearing, scheduled to begin at 7:00pm before the Vergennes Township board at a regularly scheduled meeting, Langlois will present “a concept plan for a PUD home site development.”

According to public records, Langlois has amassed ownership of nearly 120 prime acres in the Township, including a 28 acre parcel of Flat River frontage located at the end of a private road (Triple Oak Drive) off Lincoln Lake Road, also owned by Langlois. In addition, Langlois recently unloaded an extraordinary 8,000 square foot home set on a 20 acre plot overlooking the Flat River.

The Flat River is a tributary of the Grand River, starting in Six Lakes in Montcalm County, traveling through Greenville, Belding, and ending at the Grand River in Lowell.

In 1980, Michigan amended its zoning enabling acts to allow for more flexibility in zoning. 

Today, the Michigan Zoning Enabling Act (MZEA), houses that authorization at MCL 125.3503. That added flexibility is called planned unit development (PUD), which allows for mixed-land uses in a single development, and clustering and flexibility in design of a PUD’s parcels. 

Others often refer to this practice by other names: cluster zoning, planned development, community unit plan, planned residential development and other terminology. A PUD can also be set up to allow both the clustering and mix of land uses in one project. 

A PUD can be done in conjunction with various different means of splitting and conveying land. It can be done in coordination with creating a subdivision, creation of a condominium of the surface of land, leasing property and land divisions. 

Langlois, a twice-convicted sex offender, is currently serving an 18-month probation term imposed after a 10-day slap-on-the-wrist sentence handed down in June

According to the public notice issued by Vergennes Township, the “application for 14 home sites and preserved Flat River frontage is proposed on a 28 acre parcel at the end of the private road Triple Oak Dr (off Lincoln Lake Ave) by owner Bruce Langlois. This is a concept plan to gather public input. A final plan with details such as site condo lots and private road extension will be later submitted to the Planning Commission for a full review.”

Let's hope this means Langlois will not mutilate any more sweet little puppies and kittens, like Skittles.
