BARODA — Get ready for NIMBY Pond 2.

The Baroda Township Planning Commission on Monday voted unanimously to accept pond owner Mark Schutze’s request to rescind his application for a continuation of his special land use permit to operate the pond. Instead, Schutze told the planners he will apply for a new permit, as early as February or March.
