Planning Commission

The State of Michigan grants townships authority to regulate and control property development to promote and protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public. This responsibility is carried out in Kochville Township by a seven-member Planning Commission appointed by the supervisor with township approval.

The Planning Commission develops a comprehensive master plan for managing residential, commercial, agricultural, industrial, and other land and must hold at least four regular meetings per year. At least one public hearing is necessary before adopting any portion of the plan. The Commission also is responsible for implementing the township’s master plan by providing recommendations to the Board of Trustees for final approval.

All Kochville Township zoning ordinances, as well as the Kochville Township Master Plan are available for review at the Township Offices. You can find the Zoning Ordinance online HERE.

The 2020 Capital Improvement Program has been put in place and approved by the Board of Trustees. The CIP provides a framework of proposed projects that may be put in place over a five year duration. CIP also helps the community to ensure the long-term viability of Kochville Township.
