Planning and Zoning:

The Planning Division works with current land use planning, future land use planning and zoning. Using Plan Kalamazoo, the city's Master Plan, and the City's Code of Ordinances, Planning staff directs future growth and redevelopment to help create a better, more sustainable community. Much of the work performed by the Planning Division is guided by the Zoning Ordinance within the City's Code of Ordinances. The Planning Division supports the work of the Planning Commission and the Zoning Board of Appeals, as well as the Site Plan Review Committee, and the Downtown Design Review Committee.


What's New:

As of January 1, 2016 all payments for permits can only be accepted at issuance of the permit. Payments cannot be accepted at time of application.
