Jackson Township is divided into various Zoning Districts. . . Residential, Commercial, Village, Industrial and so on. . . Certain types of uses are only permitted in a particular zone as designated on the Zoning Map. Typically, the Zoning Officer determines if a certain use or change of use is appropriate in a given location. Feel free to contact the Zoning Office (email is best) if you need assistance with the Zoning Ordinance interpretation.
Many property improvements require Zoning and/or Building Code permits. It is important to plan ahead and inquire about permits you may need well in advance of starting your project. Thank You.
Special Note: If you are considering operating a dwelling as a Vacation Home Rental, it is paramount that you contact the Zoning Office prior to following through with this change of use. Violations for this use are being enforced.
