Village Boards & Commissions

Welcome SignThere are a number of appointed boards and commissions which serve in an advisory role to the Milford Village Council. These boards and commissions generally focus on a specific purpose, which is defined in the ordinance or resolution language which provides the basis for each board or commission's existence.

A listing of the current Village Boards & Commissions may be found on the menu to the left. Agendas and meeting minutes for each board can be found online via Minutes on Demand. Documents older than two years may be obtained by contacting the Village Clerk at (248) 684-1515.

Current Board/Commission Openings

  • Zoning Board of Appeals (1 regular position, plus 1 alternate position are vacant)
    The Zoning Board of Appeals is a seven-member board that meets the first Thursday of each month (December meeting always the first Wednesday) at 7:30 p.m.  Positions are filled by Council appointment for three-year terms.  Board members must be Village residents.

    The ZBA is a quasi-judicial board that exercises three basic functions: 1) interpreting the ordinance (text and map); 2) deciding the appeals of administrative decisions, and 3) granting variances (use and non-use).  Attendance at planning and zoning seminars is encouraged for members, at Village expense.  A knowledge of the Zoning Ordinance and State Enabling Act would be expected to allow board members to review dimensional and use variance requests and interpretations of the zoning ordinance.
  • Tree Board (1 vacant position)
    The Tree Board is a three-member board; the DPS Director and two members appointed by Council. The Tree Board meets when necessary during the afternoon on business days. No experience is necessary, but members must be Village residents. 

Interested persons should send a letter of interest to the Village Clerk, Village of Milford, 1100 Atlantic, Milford, MI  48381 or to dfrazer@villageofmilford.org
