PLANNING & ZONING DEPARTMENT
Cheboygan County Planning & Zoning Department is located in the County Building in a shared office with Cheboygan Conservation District.
For us to best provide guidance on your project we look forward to hearing your ideas well in advance of applying for a permit. This will help ensure that your project meets your goals as well as the requirements of the Zoning and Soil Erosion laws.
All buildings or structures that are erected, moved, added to, or altered require a zoning permit. This includes such work as constructing an agricultural building, adding a second story to an existing structure, or placing a mobile home on a parcel. A Soil Erosion permit will most likely be needed for work done (including grading or other earth change) within 500′ of a lake, pond, river, or stream. Please contact us and our friendly staff for information regarding specific requests.
In general, non-residential structures and uses are reviewed by the Planning Commission and not administratively. Please contact our friendly staff for information regarding specific requests.
Some items to be aware of that will help us ensure your permit is approved quickly and meets your needs:
- Your Tax ID is needed for new construction on a pending parcel split. We can find that for you if you don’t have it handy.
- Your permit, once approved, remains valid if construction begins within six months of the date of approval. Once construction is complete, the permit is good indefinitely.
Planning & Zoning Department handles zoning and soil erosion complaints. Zoning enforcement excludes City of Cheboygan, Burt Township, and the Village of Mackinaw City and the Village of Wolverine.
The zoning enforcement process will begin after the submission of a complaint form to the Cheboygan County Planning & Zoning Department either by fax to (231)627-3646, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, by mail or in person to Cheboygan County Planning & Zoning Dept., 870 S. Main St Rm. 103, PO Box 70, Cheboygan, MI 49721.
Please call (231)627-8827 if you have any questions.
