Welcome to the Breitung Township Master Plan Survey


Breitung Township | Citizen Survey

Your Voice Matters! Breitung Township has begun the process of updating their Master Plan. Citizen input is an integral part of the Breitung Township Master Plan.  Please complete the following questionnaire.  Your responses are anonymous and will be reported in group form only.  

What is a Master Plan?

According to the Michigan Planning Enabling Act (Public Act 33 of 2008, as amended) a Master Plan addresses land use and infrastructure issues and may project 20-years into the future. It includes maps, plats, charts, a land use plan, and other descriptive material. The Master Plan will illustrate the planning commission’s recommendations for the physical development of the planning jurisdiction. For a local unit of government that has adopted a zoning ordinance, the master plan will also include a zoning plan for various zoning districts controlling height, area, bulk, location and use of buildings. This is paired with an explanation of how the land use categories on the future land use map relate to districts on the zoning map.

Thanks for your help!
