In Michigan, land use planning may be delegated to local planning commissions.
Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==1-MI-a.1 – Land Use Planning Delegated to Municipalities and Counties==
In Michigan, land use planning is primarily delegated to local (e.g., county, township, city, and village) planning commissions. [[Michigan – Act 33 of 2008 – Planning Enabling Act|Michigan Planning Enabling Act]]. Under the [[Michigan – Act 33 of 2008 – Planning Enabling Act|Michigan Planning Enabling Act]], a local planning commission must implement a master plan (land use plan) to guide development within the planning jurisdiction. [[Michigan – Act 33 of 2008 – Planning Enabling Act|MCL § 125.3831]].
Zoning is also largely delegated to local authorities. Under the [[Michigan – Act 110 of 2006 – Zoning Enabling Act|Michigan Zoning Enabling Act]], zoning ordinances must be based upon plans designed to, among other things, promote public health, safety, and general welfare and to encourage the use of lands in accordance with their character and adaptability. [[Michigan – Act 110 of 2006 – Zoning Enabling Act|MCL § 125.3203]]. Local units of government may enact zoning ordinances within their zoning jurisdiction to regulate the use of land and structures to meet the needs of the state’s citizens. [[Michigan – Act 110 of 2006 – Zoning Enabling Act|MCL § 125.3201]].
Nevertheless, all zoning regulations are subject to the [[Michigan – Act 30 of 1995 – Electric Transmission Line Certification Act|Michigan Electric Transmission Line Certification Act]], which regulates the location and construction of certain electric transmission lines. [[Michigan – Act 110 of 2006 – Zoning Enabling Act|MCL § 125.3205(a)]]. Accordingly, in Michigan, electricity transmission siting falls largely to the [[Michigan Public Service Commission]], although local units of government and their officials are given precedence under certain circumstances. [[Michigan – Act 30 of 1995 – Electric Transmission Line Certification Act|Michigan Electric Transmission Line Certification Act]].
