Zoning:

Zoning is the governmental regulation of the use of land. The purpose of zoning is to function as a tool to implement a community's master plan: ensure the compatibility of land uses, protect natural resources and protect property values. Zoning involves adopting a zoning ordinance that divides the community into various districts or zones. Zoning specifies the permitted land use, such as residential, commercial or industrial, within each zone. Briley Township's Zoning Ordinance was adopted on April 8th 1976, and was amended twenty one times since it became effective on June 8th, 1976.

For more information please contact the Briley Township Zoning Administration / Enforcement Officer: Barry Braun, PO Box 207, Atlanta, MI 49709; Phone: (989) 785-4624; barry@brileytownship.com.
