Scott Vitale hopes to create a venue near Clark Lake featuring the Country Boots & Bands brand. Operating as Raine Productions, the organization has put on shows in surrounding townships including Summit, Napoleon and Blackman. The one-day music concerts could eventually attract up to 5,000 to the proposed venue, although their current application limits the number to 2,000. Doors would open at 6 pm with performances from 7 pm – 10:30 pm.
The proposed location is near Industrial Drive, adjacent to US 127. Sixteen acres would be devoted to the venue. Ten of those 16 acres would be set aside for parking.
By ordinance, Columbia Township trustees would be required to vote on approval. To review more of the proposal as made to the Township, please click here.
Scott Vitale explained his plans to the board. Trustee of Mike Trout of Clark Lake, offered a cautionary note.
