Michigan Zoning, Planning, and Land Use

Michigan land use experts explain the ins and outs of zoning and land use, whether you represent the developer, the municipality, the landowner, or a neighbor. You will be able to:

  • Unscramble the unexpected zoning or land use problem
  • Request a rezoning, special land use approval, or a PUD
  • Represent the municipality or neighbor objecting to a land use request
  • Make a winning presentation to the municipality or court
  • Identify every approval or permit needed--including wetlands, woodlands, or historic preservation
  • Make an evidentiary record at the municipal level so you can successfully handle constitutional challenges

Highlights of the latest update include:

  • Two U.S. Supreme Court cases on regulatory takings, Cedar Point Nursery v Hassid, and Knick v Township of Scott, Pennsylvania
  • Discussion of Michigan Supreme Court case, DeRuiter v Township of Byron, on municipal zoning authority in the medical marijuana context
  • Court of appeals decisions on interim zoning ordinances, conditional rezoning, nuisance actions and the Fourth Amendment, use variances, and short-term rental licenses
