This presentation is a very basic introduction to planning and zoning in Michigan. It is a non-technical (not designed for members of a planning commission, appeals board) review of the topic. This is a good introduction for citizen groups or other organizations that wish to understand planning and zoning better. This program might be considered part I, with part II being "Influencing Zoning Decisions".

This program covers:

  1. Why Plan
  2. Planning
  3. Implement the plan
  4. Coordination
  5. Zoning
  6. Training, Keeping up-to-date
