Cooperative Extension Service

Extension bulletin e1408

The following is an out dated or old pamphlet. New laws, or court cases have made this material obsolete. But in the case of new statutes, some of these materials may still be needed for issues which pre-date the statutory changes. It is for these historical reasons, the materials are found here.  The materials here, are written for the specifics of planning and land use law in Michigan.

This publication was prepared by Mark Wyckoff and Jonathan Vogler from a text originally prepared by Ronald Lee, then of the West Michigan Regional Planning Commission. Sections include Unlocking the secrets of the zoning maze, Who does what in county zoning, and General zoning procedures. 34 pp.

This is the second edition. It has been updated by Mark Wyckoff and Kristine Williams based on statutory and case law changes since the first edition, prepared in 1979 and contains information through the July 1990 legislative session.

CES is jointly publishing this second edition with the Michigan Society of Planning Officials. The guidebook borrow thoughts, ideas, phrases and graphics liberally from other smiliar documents prepared by public planners in many other states over the past thrity years.

Elected Officials: Dealing with Constituent Complaints on Planning and Zoning Issues

Elected officials frequently hear from constituents who are unhappy with a decision concerning a zoning permit, site plan, or the enforcement of a zoning ordinance. This pamphlet is written to help elected officials evaluate the options when asked to intervene in such cases. It offers suggestions on how to address specific situations to insure due process and to avoid unintended consequences and additional conflict. Most importantly it points out some actions by elected officials that can result in far greater problems. 10 pp.



Form Based Codes and Michigan Zoning Enabling Acts

With neo-traditional development, and development attempting to follow traditional patterns, a new type of zoning is starting to catch on in Michigan: Form-Based Code, or Form-Based Zoning. This type of zoning places more emphasis on the design (form) of development and redevelopment and less on the type of use. This pamphlet is to discuss its legal application under Michigan's zoning enabling statutes. By Steve Langworthy formerly of Langworthy Strader LeBlanc & Associates, Inc. This has been updated to reflect P.A. 110 of 2006, as amended, (being the Michigan Zoning Enabling Act, M.C.L. 125.3101 et seq.). (A copy of Michigan's first form based zoning ordinance, Village of Suttons Bay in Leelanau County, is available here.)
