New Zoning Ordinance Now in Effect
For the past year your planning commission has been actively involved with a project to update the Township’s Zoning Ordinance, zoning map and design guidelines. The old Zoning Ordinance was adopted in 1947 and has been amended on a regular basis during the past 65+ years without a comprehensive revision. The Ordinance failed to meet the Township’s needs in several areas and in some, contradicted Michigan Law. A public hearing was held on June 8, where some minor changes were made. The changes were incorporated into the text and map for final approval at the regular planning commission meeting on July 7, 2016. The ordinance was presented to the Board of Trustees for first reading on July 25. It was approved on August 8, 2016 and went into effect on August 31, 2016.
