Zoning Department

The Zoning Administrator, Julie Durkin, can be reached through Village Hall Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, and currently has office hours on Mondays & Thursdays.

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

Please keep in mind that projects need to adhere to not only the Zoning Ordinance but also the Technical Standards for Design & Construction.

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