Land Use and Zoning

​​​The mission of the Land Use and Zoning Program is to prepare and provide land use, zoning, and master plan information to and for Oakland County communities to enhance coordination of land use decision-making.
Oakland County is mandated under Michigan law to review all Master Plans and Master Plan amendments prior to adoption. The county also reviews township rezoning where the property abuts a community boundary or county-owned property.
