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 intending to use a residential property as Vacation Home Rental, please know that a permit is required. Visit the Short-Term Rental page on this website for the permit application and guidance. This page will become active after the new short-tern rental ordinance is passed. We anticipate adoption of the new ordinance on July 12, 2018.
