Excerpts from Emmet County Zoning Ordinance
The Zoning Permit Application is a form to be used for all approved uses. This form is typically used for residential and accessory residential uses. It is necessary to have this form completed and approved by the Zoning Administrator prior to obtaining a valid Building Permit.
For signs which require a permit (See Section 22.07 of the Emmet County Zoning Ordinance), the Sign Permit Application is required.
A Special Use Permit is required for land uses that are not explicitly permitted as primary uses by the Emmet County Zoning Ordinance.
A home occupation special use permit is required for any business operated as an accessory use to a residence.
Except for one family or two family dwellings or permitted accessory buildings, per Section 2201, a complete Site Plan shall be submitted to the Emmet County Planning Commission (or Board of Appeals if so required), for the approval of any use for which a Site Plan is required by this Ordinance. (Article XXII, Section 2405 Emmet County Zoning Ordinance)
Planned Unit Developments can be complex in terms of administration. The applicant is encouraged to contact staff to schedule a pre-application conference.
