This department is the first contact people have when they need to go through site plan review, rezoning review, variance requests, lot splits, special use permits and zoning ordinance enforcement issues such as site plan compliance, signage, utility structures and decks. Any questions regarding planning and zoning should be directed to Building Official Randy Sapelak at or by calling the Village office at (248) 684-1515.

The Village also retains a planning consultant through Giffels Webster. They assist with review and recommendations at Planning Commission meetings.
