Planning Commission

The City of Owosso provides planning and zoning services for the community. These include the zoning of property, site plan reviews, long range planning, appeals, interpretations, and variances.

The City of Owosso uses its 2012 Master Plan to guide growth, change, and policy within the city. This document serves as a road map that establishes a common vision for the community that includes implementation strategies. Under the direction of the planning commission, the master plan is used to guide strategic planning efforts, property sales/acquisition, land use changes, zoning code changes, and capital investment.

The planning commission is the body primarily responsible for applying the plan. This commission is comprised of nine community residents, and this body deliberates on site plans, zoning changes, special land uses, and other planning matters as directed by the city council.

The zoning board of appeals is responsible for overseeing interpretations of the zoning code, appeals of decisions by staff, the planning commission, and city council, as well as variances. Decisions of the ZBA can only be appealed to circuit court. This body is comprised of five members and two alternates of the city electorate. Their meeting schedule, applications, and fees are listed to the right.
