Planning & Zoning
In order to establish zoning regulations, a comprehensive land use plan is first created. The comprehensive plan is a "big picture" land use document that researches and analyzes the Township's physical conditions, demographics, economics, traffic patterns, and public opinions in order to establish a vision for the future. The plan includes general guidelines, recommendations, and goals intended to help make the community's vision a reality. Once the comprehensive plan is adopted, zoning districts and regulations consistent with the plan are drafted and codified in a legally enforceable Zoning Resolution.
