Communities use zoning to protect the health, safety, and welfare of its residents. Zoning preserves the character of our community by allowing certain types of development in specific areas, keeping factories out of residential districts, and neighborhoods out of retail districts. Of course at some point these may be adjacent to one another.
Township Zoning can regulate most building and land uses. Exempt from regulation are agricultural uses and public utilities.
