Planning and Zoning Department staff work with residents, property owners and business owners on questions regarding land use. We strive to educate applicants and smooth the process of site development from concept to construction. We provide staff support to the Planning Commission and Zoning Board of Appeals by processing applications, writing agendas, preparing meeting minutes, and notices of public hearings. We review and approve proposals for land divisions (lot splits), and issue permits for signs and fences. We also provide project management for Township-initiated improvements, such as parks, trails and water main extensions.
If you have a question regarding use of your property, the Planning and Zoning staff are a helpful resource. We have a wide range of mapping capabilities, through the Oakland County Geographic Information Systems utility (GIS), and maintain a library of plans, studies and design manuals to guide you in design or maintenance of your site. We can help you identify issues you should consider in planning for the best use of your property.
