Zoning and Land Use Planning

The use and development of real estate in Michigan is typically governed by local laws and ordinances. These land use and zoning laws place restrictions on the type of developments that may be constructed in certain areas of the community. Zoning laws also prescribe the types of activities that may take place on a property. In some cases, a property owner may wish to make use of the land that is not consistent with the local zoning rules.
