In 2002 Michigan Planning Commissions received a new duty, to review the plans of neighboring governments and their county's plans. This publication reviews the duty to conducting those reviews, how long you have to do the review, what the review is for, examples of submissions made in review of a plan, what the county planning commission reviews for, as well as other tips.
In 2002 Michigan Planning Commissions had another series of steps added to the process of adopting a plan. One of those steps is to solicit comments from neighboring governments on one's own proposed plan. After those submissions are received each should be assessed and action taken. This publication reviews the duty of looking at each submission received and responding to those submissions, how long one waits for submissions, what to do with the comments on one's plan, examples of submissions and responses, as well as other tips.
