Zoning & Planning

The Zoning Administrator can be reached at Village Hall Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Land Use Permits are required for most construction (including decks, fences, additions and pools) or changes in use of a building. Please contact our office before starting a project. Livingston County Building Department will not issue their required permits without a Village land use permit.

In 2009, an ordinance was enacted  to allow the Village Council to serve as the Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).  ZBA bylaws can be found here..
