Zoning Ordinance Update Sub-Committee

The City of Dexter has begun an update of the City’s Zoning Ordinance and Subdivision Control Ordinance, led by a sub-committee of elected and appointed City officials with support from City planning staff and consultants. The Zoning Ordinance is the local law regulating the location and size of buildings, what “uses” (e.g., residential, commercial, industrial) can happen where, sign location and size, and the landscaping, parking and environmental protections needed with new building and redevelopment. The Subdivision Control Ordinance mandates the design and layout of streets, landscaping, and property lines for future residential, commercial, and industrial subdivisions.

Sub-Committee meetings are open to the public, and occur on the first Monday of the month at 5:00pm.
