About Building and Zoning Responsibilities

The City of Laingsburg is governed by ordinances and plans that propose the orderly development of land, capital improvements and concentration of different land uses.  The City is granted these privileges under State’s Municipal Planning Act, Public Act 207 of 1921.  In general, planning and zoning are closely related and regulate development – from residential to industrial. Zoning controls the intensity and type of development allowed in specific areas of the City. 

It is important that prior to purchasing, developing or altering property, that City Zoning Codes and Plans are referenced.   Before changes can take place, a site plan or other request may have to be made to the City Planning Commission or a variance may be required from the Board of Appeals on Zoning.  City staff acts as the liaison between residents and the City Planning Commission and Board of Appeals on Zoning.  Many residents and developers find it helpful to meet with City Staff prior to any improvements in order to determine if the City’s zoning code or the State’s building code will require any modifications or improvements.
