How to Influence Zoning Decisions


February 16, 2024 - Kurt Schindler, <>, <>, <>, and <>

This Document is offered in: English, Espanol

This presentation targets two potential audiences: 

  1. A County with county-level zoning that wishes to include local governments in their zoning deliberations. (For example, some county zoning requires notices for special use permits, amendments, and appeals to be sent to the respective municipality and nearby municipalities as well as affected public utilities. Also, comments received from these parties are given "extra deference" at the public hearing.)
  2. Neighborhood organizations, lake associations, citizen groups wishing to be more effective in influencing local zoning decisions, whether at a township, village, city, or county level.
