NOTICE OF THE POSTING OF THE ADOPTION OF THE
NEW ZONING ORDINANCE AND ZONING MAP

 NOTICE IS GIVEN, in accordance with MCL 42.8, that the Plainfield Charter Township Board of Trustees on February 22, 2021, adopted a new zoning ordinance and zoning map for the Township to replace the prior zoning ordinance and zoning map in their entirety.

The new zoning ordinance has been reformatted and incorporated with graphic illustrations to make it more user-friendly.  In addition, it contains a more complete list of definitions and land uses permitted by right, subject to special conditions, or as special land use, as well as general land-use regulations. Without limitation, the new zoning ordinance also contains a new residential district zoning district, R-1C, which is intended to function as a transition zone between larger lot residential parcels and more dense neighborhoods with smaller lots.  The new zoning map was also updated to include, among other matters, the R-1C District.

Copies of the complete new zoning ordinance and zoning map are posted and available for review, purchase and/or inspection on the Township’s website at www.plainfieldmi.org and are posted at the Township Clerk’s office at 6161 Belmont Avenue NE, Belmont, Michigan 49306 (616-364-8466). Copies of the new zoning ordinance and zoning map may also be obtained by contacting the Township’s Community Development Department by email at communitydevelopment@plainfieldmi.org or phone at: (616) 364-1190. 

Note:  The links below provide the ordinance and map as approved by the Township Board on February 22, 2021, and is effective as of March 10, 2021. Final ordinance formatting to follow.
