Master Plan - St.
Joseph Charter Township passed a big milestone July 10th when the Board of
Trustees formally adopted the 2017 Master Plan.
Many township residents as well as officials and staff contributed to
preparation of the Master Plan with the guidance of Wightman and
Associates. Michigan law requires that all
municipalities that have zoning authority have a master land use plan and use
it as the basis for zoning decisions.
The plan should be reviewed every five years to make sure that it meets
current needs. The master plan contains
an implementation guide. Areas to be addressed
include community/place, transportation/connectivity, natural areas/recreation,
and economic development. Click here to view.
A new Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Law went into effect on July 1, 2015. Please feel free to review the updated documents below, and if you have any questions, contact the Township Clerk at (269) 429-7703.
