Attention Residents & Homeowners:

It is the responsibility of the homeowner to install and maintain a proper building number sign in compliance with the requirements of Ordinance NO. 2010-101, also referred to as "Jackson Township E-911 Street and Building Sign Ordinance." Please see link below for further details. We urge current residents and homeowners who already have signs up to check if it meets these requirements.

Zoning & Building

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.
